Me and My Drummer – “You’re a Runner”
Singer Charlotte Brandi and drummer Matze Pröllochs make up the German indie-pop duo Me and My Drummer. Much like bands Nikki and The Dove and Florence and the Machine, these two are skilled at creating the dramatic, probably spawning from their background in theater. The song “You’re a Runner” is the Me and My Drummer’s “anthem of solace,” which the duo was inspired to write after hearing a story of a girl who wanted to commit suicide. As Brandi’s crisp vocals swell and layer above a pulsating kick-drum and expanding percussion section, the song will literally grow on you.
