These guys might not have the most conventional way of spelling “Meant-to-Be,” but nothing about them seems to be very conventional. Any attempt I may make to categorize them seems to me like it will fall desperately short, so I’ll just mention a few tidbits from their various social media pages.
“Cathartic spastic disco sludge guaranteed to block the sink and leave chunks floating on the surface.”
“Noise-enriched synth-punk mayhem”
“A Melbourne based new romantic, jazz funk, post-nothing, noise-pop smorgasbord with extra mayonnaise.”
That probably brought up more questions then it answered, but don’t blame me. I’m about as lost as you guys are. I am enjoying it though! These guys are pretty good at building a wall of sound that on the surface seems pretty abrasive, but underneath is something surprisingly catchy. Very great low-fi effects and lyrics are sprinkled around adding to the dysfunctional nature.
I feel obligated to throw my hat into the “genre-defining ring,” so here it goes: mnttaB is what you get when you fill a recording studio with water and then throw it into a giant blender…but with the best results possible!
