MeMe Detroit is multi-tasking MeMe on vocals, guitars, and synth, and Kallum McEwen on drums. Despite their name, they’re not actually from Detriot. They’re not even from Michigan!
They’re actually no-so-secretly British Colombian (and I’m checking with my sources, but I’m pretty sure that’s some kind of Canadian).
MeMe Detroit perform a self-described variety of pop-punk they deem “uplifting Angst,” a sound that sits between gritty, guitar grunge and rip-your-heart-out-of-your-chest folk punk.
Because New Noise love all of that stuff (and we think you will, too), we’re premiering MeMe Detroit with their “‘Mean Rock N Roller,” filmed in quarantine with all their friends who they can now only hang out with via Zoom.
Check out MeMe Detroit’s “‘Mean Rock N Roller” below:
MeMe Detroit’s new song is a message to all of the musicians out there, and that message is “DON’T GIVE UP!”
The band elaborate below:
“‘Mean Rock N Roller’ is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song that we had written as a bit of fun but at the same time says ‘fuck you’ to the limiting beliefs that are pressed on us by society as we grow up. You can basically be, do or have anything you want in life when you put your mind to it, so never settle. It’s pointless.”
