We are very pleased to premiere the new single ‘My Hero The Homewrecker’ from Meanjin/Brisbane-based Mecha Mecha. An astounding mélange of classical instruments, electronica and thundering guitars with operatic vocals, this is a thrilling ride that sounds like nothing else (although a nod to the sonic acrobatics of Muse cannot be denied).
To describe ‘My Hero The Homewrecker’ as cinematic is too reductive – this track has no physical limitations and no known boundaries: it ebbs and flows like a Tsunami with innovative and creative arrangements and leaves the pulse racing with its dramatic thrum.
Strings pave the way for the explosion – the bass as a driving lead with a fuzzy drive that thunders throughout and strings that reach a crescendo. It’s sort of classical music intertwined with metal in a deathly wrestle, prog rock doing a foxtrot with Opera. The track reaches a climactic apotheosis before gently laying the listener to rest.
Written about reflecting on a relationship that broke down and flourished into friendship, the vocals of Walter Webb are extraordinary with a range greater than the Himalayas and with the tenderness that belies the music, redolent of Thom Yorke from Radiohead or Queen’s Freddie Mercury.
‘My Hero The Homewrecker’ is out tomorrow (Friday, 5 May 2023) and can be pre-saved here.
