MEAN CAESAR – ‘Mean Caesar’ EP Review

MEAN CAESAR – Mean Caesar

Mean CaesarSouth London punker’s Mean Caesar have been tearing their way through the grimiest clubs and loudest bars South of the river since the start of 2018 and their eponymously titled debut EP shows that the touring has helped them hone their craft.

The SIX-track pile-driver opens with The Lane where the band offer up some chunky riffs, serrated guitars and melodic lead vocals that combine to produce a hook laden sound with a raw edge full of power.

There are elements of Husker Du, The Lemonheads and Bad Religion in the band’s sound and they up the pace with the ninety-one seconds of Gone and the momentum continues into the grumbling and growling Drowning where Mean Caesar sound more South California than South London in a Pennywise/Bad Religion type of way.

On June 12th the slightly off-kilter guitars offer serrated backing to the verses whilst the chorus soars high and the second to last song, Blinded Eyes is a head-banging, air punching rumbling effort with some excellent gravel throated vocals and another excellent chorus!

The EP wraps up with South London Summer with a skate-punk meets Gaslight Anthem sound to produce some catchy pop-punk vibes that is full of energy, melody and hooks.
