In what seems to be a continuous one-shot detailing the goings on at a Boston industrial door hinge factory, the video for “Mean It” by Terence Ryan conveys the bare bones reality of working class America. Ryan, who was born and raised in the Boston suburb of Pembroke MA, comes from an “act first-talk later” back round. This frank, beautiful and forthright perspective is one that pervades throughout his début release.
Don’t Panic, the début album from Boston-based musician Terence Ryan out June 23rd on 3QTR / Kobalt.
