"Image and Egos- Around the Sound"

The Meeck are back! And, if you weren’t aware they’d been away, then you have some catching up to do and some delicious moments of West Aussie folk rock to experience.
The brainchild of Perth singer and song writer, Shane Khin, this is music for the underdogs, those who life keeps battering and telling they aren’t good enough. It’s a gentle ‘fuck you’ to the world’s negative energy and an exhortation to live! For that alone, we love this artist.

Case in point, take the second track on The Meeck’s current release, third album, Image And Egos, and draw some inspiration to keep on keeping on.
"I almost gave up on the dream I’d always fought for
To a life where everyday was drawn the same
But you told me that’s not what I was built for
That this journey was mine to take"

Images And Egos is a rough diamond of an album. There’s plenty to take in and its 11 tracks demand multiple listens, preferably with the lyric sheets so you can sink deeply into the words and music that Khin has gifted to the world.

"GUESS WHO'S BACK, WITH A FRESH NEW ALBUM, THE MEECK!"

After spending the last 2 years writing, recording and crafting his sound, there has been an announced return of The Meeck, with the release of his 3rd album 'Image and Egos', set to launch this Thursday at The Aardvark.
The forthcoming record is the follow up to his 2017 LP 'Dormant Voices' and is set to be released on October 25th, 2019. The title track and first single off the new album 'Image and Egos', was released on September 26th, 2019 and is a jaunt into alt rock city.

Shane Khin, the mastermind behind The Meeck is back at it again, recording the new album in Shane’s home studio in Perth, Western Australia. Meanwhile, Alex Toff (Martha Wainwright, Dashboard Confessional) record the drums in London. Shane also recruited Darryn Ball to mix and master the album at Norman Solander Studios (Perth, Western Australia).

Having written poetry from a young age and growing up listening to music such as Roy Orbison, Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles, Shane began to song write in his early 20s, showing him the emotional power the right lyrics can have on a track. This has lead to most of The Meecks song’s being structured like short stories with a musical score weaved around them.

The title track is quite exposed and raw, the intro guitars set up a nice transition into vocal territory with strong hooks throughout. The simplicity at just the right time in the track adds a touch of space to feel warm while still being taken away by the songs strong direction. Shane’s lack of care factor for authodox style of musical representation of his emotions and thoughts is what encourages a truly unique result in his writing.

The Image and Egos Album Launch is set to be held at The Aardvark October 24th 2019 with Support Acts, Kings and Queens, Stacey Ann and Savannah and the Strays, make sure your there to catch some of this fresh tune city and celebrate the awaited return of The Meeck! - Toasty tunes


"The Meeck is an indie force to be reckoned with on Image And Ego"

The Meeck is an indie force to be reckoned with on Image And Ego
The latest album from The Meeck, Image and Egos, proves he’s got big things to say about love and mental health, delivering something of a story-telling masterpiece.
The Meeck’s seamless blend of folkish story-telling and refreshingly laid-back poppy choruses are sure signs of his ability to traverse a variety of genres with distinguished ease. Tracks like Morning Blue and Long Road have inherently danceable poppy textures which are given a distinctly sensitive and personalised feel, highlighted by Shane Khin’s high-end tenor voice.

Distrubuting an album-length body of work has worked incredibly to favour of The Meeck’s as the album takes a gradual journey through dramatically different soundscapes. Through the 11-track work, we are able to fully inspect The Meeck’s more low-key minimalist folkish sound influences. Gently, we are nursed into the more spacious electronica elements of the record which are best demonstrated through the clean synths textures and minimalist percussion on tracks like Mute and Surface.

Like some sort of genre-bending wizard, The Meeck transforms this new territory of minimal electronica into an even more personal, mostly percussionless endeavor with largely acoustic songs of deep contemplation and indecision.

The construction of the album shows that The Meek has a natural gift for composition and, more impressively, curation. Although image and egos traverses a range of contrasting sounds and genres, Khin’s aims are fundamentally clear. He delivers a project tailor-made to express the complexity of The Meeck’s message of through gradual and gentle auditory contrasts which never feel too abrupt.

Image and Egos is an incredibly personal album for The Meeck, drawing on experiences of depression and anxiety as well as the therapuetic effect which various forms of creative expression allowed Khin while writing the album. It should, therefore, be viewed as much more than just an album but as a thorough and dynamic reflection of self, beautifully expressed through the combination of myriad creative mediums. The Meeck’s innate creative talent is strengthened by his passion and more than competent ability in film-making, digital design, and puppetry, all of which serve to provide a diverse variety of perspectives in which to connect with his work. - Happy Mag - Magazine

Bio

Combining storytelling with sensitive songwriting the Meeck is the Alt-Pop project by Western Australian musician Shane Khin. First introducing audiences to his songwriting in 2015, with the release of his debut album “Diversions Ends”, a collection of songs that Shane had been writing while living in London. Creating this album didn’t just become the testing ground for Shane to experiment with his songwriting and sound, but also the chance to incorporate his other passions of film making, animation and puppets, creating his own music videos and album/promo art, turning the Meeck into an audio and visual experience.

Having written poetry from a young age and growing up listening to music such as Roy Orbison, Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles, were big influences on Shane when he began to song write in his early 20s, showing him the emotional power the right lyrics can have on a song. This has lead to most Meeck song’s being structured like short stories with a musical score weaved around them. In the early months of 2016 songwriting became a very useful tool to Shane with his battle with depression and anxiety, giving him an outlet to express and process what he was going through. This lead to the writing of his 2017 album “Dormant Voices” , a collection of songs that explored the invisible and silent face of having a mental illness.


In the 4 years since releasing his first album, Shane has performed for many audiences, at various venues, in numerous Showcases and Festivals, slowly building his fan base. Now in the last part of 2019 Shane is getting ready to release his new MEeck album “Image and Egos”. This 11 track album spans from Energetic Pop songs like “Morning Blue” and “Image and Egos”, Acoustic-Folk with “Met with Silent Fears”  to Ambient Synth tracks like “Surface” and “Mute”.  While each song varies in tone, what they all have in common is the theme that there’s 2 choices you face when life throws you a curve ball, either give up or keep on fighting through.
