While ‘Mean Green’ is a return to ska-punk form for us in many ways, we wanted to really challenge ourselves to take everything that makes Half Past Two and dial it up to 11. The writing process started like many of our songs with Tara’s lyrics and a basic structure by myself. Pre-pandemic the two of us had been writing more closely with trombonist Jack Sneddon who brought a whole new life to the track with his arrangement for the horn section and main guitar riff. In the studio we got deep into the arrangement, adding multiple layers of vocals and weaving synth and guitar leads. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product and think it’s one of our best tracks to date. (Max Beckman, Half Past Two guitarist)
