Dark Mean release serene new single ‘Settle Down’


Hamilton, Ontario collective Dark Mean have released a new single, “Settle Down.”

The paired back, serene new song belies what the band describe as the struggle of their working method:

“Years of struggle and extended hiatuses are nothing new for us,” say Dark Mean. “That’s how we’ve always operated. Incessant file sharing and e-mails, frustrating Skype calls, relentless attention to detail, and the odd show amidst chaotic life schedules, are just a few ways we’ve not only hung together, but they’ve made it possible for us to keep releasing music. A focus on the music that could only come from a group of guys with no time for dilly-dallying.”

Less is more seems to be the ethos at the heart of “Settle Down”, it’s sparse arrangement creating a poised and tranquil space in which to transport an attentive audience. Take the journey via the stream below.

“Settle Down” is available now.
