New music from MeMe Detroit
De Moe (meaning the tired or weary in Dutch) is inspired by the negativity that seems to emanate from the human mindset due to the way society has moulded us. The message behind De Moe is one of how life can be made so much better just by changing our mindsets to a positive outlook.
British/Colombian Latina, MeMe Detroit was raised on the outskirts of Stratford-Upon-Avon UK and developed an ironic strong aversion to Shakespeare from a young age. As she grew, heavily influenced by a family generational box of vinyl, she inevitably developed into a poet/songwriter of her own form.
Sitting somewhere between sleazy grit rock grunge and power indie, now Birmingham based MeMe Detroit oozes sultry guitar driven hooks with a head turning vocal to make the sharpest of hairs stand on edge.
The band consists of MeMe on vocals, guitars & Synth, Barney Such on Drums and Paris Moon Fennell on bass. With over 200 gigs under their belt, they have become known for their high octane, fully immersive shows.
Since her 2016 debut album release ‘Live to Love You'll Love to Live', MeMe has been pulling in fans with a magnetism that is both eloquent yet effortlessly cool.
2018 single releases ‘Soc Med Junkies', ‘Get Down on With Me’ & latest release ‘Churchside Inn’ were both championed by BBC Introducing, amongst others, with GDOWM and CSI also landing regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio.
De Moe has already been hand picked and played by Janice Long on her BBC Radio Wales show.
