Berlin based electro pop duo Me And My Drummer recently announced their second album Love Is A Fridge, due for release on February 12th 2016 via Sinnbus. The first track released from the album is Blue Splinter View and the band have just unveiled the video. In a nutshell, the band describe the video as featuring a "sad lady spinning in space," but we'll let you take a look for yourself.
Blue Splinter View is one of the more introspective tracks on Love Is a Fridge. The song meanders through an Americana drenched verse, Charlotte Brandi's voice coming over almost as if she is singing a lullaby as a tambourine keeps the beat in the background. The strings that enter in the bridge hint at an impending change, however the power of the chorus, with it's choral, passionate vocals still knocks you back with it's power. In her own words Charlotte says it's "about spinning on your own axis in space", the lyrics eluding to the complex feelings we are confronted with during a break up, where the former partners remain close.
New album Love is a Fridge is ten perfect tracks nothing short of an electropop masterpiece as Matze Pröllochs and Brandi traverse a wide and varied soundscape. Her vocals are stronger than ever, enough to match the soulful electropop tones of Florence Welch or Jessie Ware. An album that musically covers a huge range of styles and ideas maintaining its bold feel and flavour for experimentation all the way through. If you imagine Bat For Lashes meets La Roux you’re close but there’s something somewhat celestial about Me And My Drummer that sets them apart
Blue Splinter View is out now and available on iTunes with Love is a Fridge slated for release on February 12th 2016 via Sinnbus.
