Video Premiere: MeMe Detroit – ‘Will You Be My Lie?’

Having received acclaim from the likes of Clash, Louder Than War and BBC Introducing, as well as wowing us more than once with her energy-fuelled live show at The Finsbury, at the end of last year Birmingham’s MeMe Detroit shared her immense new EP Life In The Now. Now, following the EP, she has shared a brand new video for EP track ‘Will You Be My Lie?’.

Filled with gritty blasts of grunge-tinged riffs and the soaring, gravelly snarl of MeMe, ‘Will You Be My Lie?’ is propelled by pounding beats and sweeping melodic hooks that will stick in the ears on first listen. With a gentle romanticism, it soon builds to an anthemic, emotion-fuelled slice of raw rock ‘n’ roll, showcasing once again MeMe’s innovative songwriting skills.

Of the video, MeMe explains:

“Being from an acting background and working with the awesome Dwane Perks, we wanted to treat this video as more of a short film as the song’s story-like structure lent itself to a narrative style of film. ‘Will You Be My Lie’ tells of the reality of infidelity and homes in on the idea of what drives some people to act upon their urges and whether it’s ever worth it.”

Watch the eerily captivating video for ‘Will You Be My Lie?’ here:

  ‘Will You Be My Lie?’ will be re-relased as a double A-side single, alongside a brand new re-mix by producer DantannaBeatz, on 10th May.
