Lead singer/guitarist Nick Foy and drummer Sam Cook recently teamed up to form How Mean after a late night, half-baked idea came to fruition. Originally from Mass, Foy and Cook strive to offer audiences more of a show than a concert, packing a greater punch than anyone would expect from a two man act.
Drawing influence from bands like Led Zeppelin and Brand New, How Mean’s way of reimagining familiar classics makes every song sound new again, combined with an equal dose of clever, crowd-pleasing originals which, according to Cook, fall under the genre of “gentle pressure.” As they continue to play more local shows, they look forward to expanding their act across the Los Angeles music scene. “We’re not here to make a living,” Foy says. “We’re here to make a killing.”
