Me and My Drummer

I’ve been listening to this band and their song Phobia obsessively over the past few days. When I first heard them, I thought they were from the UK. I would have never guessed them to be from Berlin. Yet, here they are, a German duo that met while they were writing music for plays, working at a theater. Not much else on the band since almost every piece of biographical info on the net is in German. (Apart from an unnecessarily long and boring article here http://therecommender.net/2012/04/11/me-and-my-drummer/ on how their music transcends boundaries.) I have only listened to a couple of songs, I can’t say I enjoy them all as much as I enjoy Phobia. But Charlotte Brandi’s vocals are intense and they have been picked up by BBC 6 Music, so expect to hear more from them if you haven’t already.

Unfortunately, they don’t have a video to Phobia yet. Or I could not find it but here’s an acoustic version.

There’s also the Breton remix, which is even better than the original. (Take a cue Alt-J?) Enjoy
