Me and My Drummer release free track "Heavy Weight" from debut album [Video]

Me and My Drummer

Berlin duo Me And My Drummer's next offering will be the free download single "Heavy Weight", taken from their spectacular forthcoming debut album 'The Hawk, The Beak, The Prey'.

"Heavy Weight" is the follow-up to the band's debut single "You're A Runner", which received support from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, XFM's John Kennedy and Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC 6Music's Chris Hawkins and Tom Ravenscroft. The video for the previous single was also featured on NME, Spinner and Artrocker.

Vocalist Charlotte Brandi's lilting vocals and synths with Matze Pröllochs' off-kilter beats merge beautifully creating gorgeous layers of sound that strike the perfect balance between dance, electro and whimsical pop - imagine Delphic fronted by Florence Welch or Marina Diamandis (of Marina and The Diamonds) and you're half way there.

Me And My Drummer - Heavy Weight video:

Charlotte and Matze met in Tübingen (Matze's hometown), Germany, whilst working in a theatre; they were both stage musicians signed on for three productions in a row but it was their mutual musical inspirations that brought them together.

The pair site Micachu And The Shapes, Beach House, The Roots, Ella Fitzgerald and M.I.A. as some of their melodic influences. Hip hop, electro and pop have all had a baring on how they write music, which is clear to hear on 'The Hawk, The Beak, The Prey'. Heavy Weight will be available to download on 25th June 2012 and will be followed by the band's debut album 'The Hawk, The Beak, The Prey' out on 24th September 2012.
