WATCH: MeMe Detroit – ‘De Moe’

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. 

Taken from the EP, latest single ‘De Moe’ is inspired by the negativity that seems to emanate from the human mindset due to the way society has moulded us. A ode to positivity overcoming the bad thoughts that can hold us back, it’s a gritty, scuzz-filled blast of grunge-tinged rock ‘n’ roll. With MeMe’s trademark gravelly snarl and penetrating riffs, it blasts into the ears with its intense racing beats, propelled by a frenzied sense of urgency and raw, soaring power.

Filmed at Pirate Studios and directed by Dwane Perks, watch the new video for ‘De Moe’ here:

Premiere: MeMe Detroit – ‘Soc Med Junkies’

Following singles ‘How She Runs’ and their distinctive rendition of Bowie’s ‘Ashes To Ashes’, MeMe Detroit have spent the last year wowing crowds across the country – including us at The Finsbury! – with their immense raging energy. And now, the Birmingham band are ready to share a brand new video.

Blasting out racing, raucous riffs and thrashing beats, ‘Soc Med Junkies’ is a gritty slice of infectious rock ‘n’ roll. Commenting on modern society’s addiction to social media, it’s filled with raw, seething vocals and an impassioned, rousing magnetism, with shades of the likes of rock legends Foo Fighters. And then, just as you start to find yourself utterly immersed in the track’s soaring energy, you’re greeted by a disconcerting pause in the middle of the video as you wait for it to ‘buffer’ (a nice touch to the social media theme), before being penetrated by MeMe’s riotous power once more.

Proving once again that they’re a sonic force to be reckoned with, MeMe Detroit remain firm favourites with this insightful and enjoyable latest offering.
