If you like a song with an unexpected twist then look no further for Berlin-based duo Me and My Drummer have just the thing. Returning after a three-year break Charlotte Brandi and Matze Pröllochs have just released a new album ‘Love Is A Fridge’ with first single ‘Blue Splinter View’ paving its way.
‘Blue Splinter View’ opens on a very dreamy laid back note, it’s swaying rhythm mingling smoothly with a soothing guitar melody before Charlotte Brandi’s soft crooning vocals glide gracefully in. Gentle and alluring Brandi’s vocals are siren-like, drawing you in with a calming verse before sending you crashing into an explosive chorus; you really don’t see that one coming. This song is an invigorating hit in the face, inspired by the turbulent nature of break-ups as the band explains:
“A girl just broke up with her beloved mate, not because they don’t love each other anymore, but because their love has transformed more into an asexual brother/sister relationship and could not keep up with the desires of the two kids,” the band says.
“It’s a song about spinning around your own axis in space.”
“Blue Splinter View” appears on Love Is A Fridge, which is now available via Sinnbus.
