Mechanical Shark (single)

The Good Minus

Mechanical Shark is the first single from the upcoming debut album by The Good Minus. It will be launched at The Retreat Hotel, Brunswick on Friday July 5th.

The Good Minus are an all-singing, instrument-swapping power trio. Their songs feature intricate three-part vocal harmonies with a style described as Grizzly Bear reimagining the songs of Elbow.

Matt Welch, David Kean and Stu Hazelman blend wildly different influences to create multi-layered arrangements, with obscure yet groove-laden time signatures.

"(The Good Minus) have succeeded in creating a perfect indie song.”
- We Love That Sound

“A gorgeous piece with faultless production and a great sonic mix of musicians… a stunning piece of work.” - Ultraviolet

"Lush harmonies…. Johnny Greenwood/Radiohead-esque lead guitar parts.”
- Divide and Conquer Music

LYRICS:
Music will come in last
like Christmas, but in reverse
and this mechanical shark
he has no regard for the art

At the meeting I wait
the faculty race
standardised test
get in your place
a mean and a mode
what you value the most
are data and rank
pre and post

Chorus

The hierarchy's set
this is your stream
are you academic?
which side of your brain?
what's your result?
we'll test you again
but outside these walls
it won't matter to them

Music will come in last
like Christmas, but in reverse
and this mechanical shark
he has no regard for the art.
