THE ME IN YOU

Bio

The Me in You, een vijftal met roots in het Hageland, kiest op haar eerste album 'Forgotten Clothes' (release: 10/02/'12, Noisesome recordings) voor ingetogen melodieën en meerstemmige harmonieën. De groep ontstond in 2009 en bleek van meet af aan stevig verankerd in het muzikale erfgoed met een mix van invloeden, gaande van The Byrds tot Sparklehorse. Een eerste demo werd opgepikt door het Noisesome label (Customs, Motek), dat hen afgelopen zomer de kans gaf hun debuutplaat op te nemen. De opnames vonden plaats in de bekende La Chapelle studio’s met producer Joris Caluwaerts (Zita Swoon, The Go Find). De plaat werd gemixt door Bob Hermans, bekend van Stijn en The Go Find. De eerste single "Girl in Armour" werd opgepikt door Studio Brussel en overwinterde in De Afrekening. Het Nederlandse muziekmagazine Oor bleek gecharmeerd door The Me in You, over “Girl In Armour” verscheen er: “De tristesse en zomeravonden nostalgie druipt er van af, een nummer om speciale herinneringen aan te hebben.’

In het najaar van 2011 verzorgde The Me in You gesmaakte optredens in het voorprogramma van Customs, zowel in België (AB, Vooruit, MOD, Depot) als in Nederland. De Nederlandse omroep VPRO schreef op haar online muziekmagazine 3 voor 12 over de doortocht van The Me in You: 'The Me In You maakt mooie popsongs in de stijl van Sparklehorse, Novastar en Nick Drake. De nummers en de band klinken alsof het Vlaamse vijftal al jaren optreedt: mooie samenzang, prachtige sfeer. Het prachtige ‘Low Battery’ blijft in het geheugen rond zingen en ook de single ‘Girl In Armour’ is erg mooi. Hopelijk gaat de bal aan de rol als de debuutplaat uitkomt, want The Me in You verdient het!'

Momenteel werkt de band aan de opvolger van het succesvolle 'Forgotten Clothes', de release is voor het najaar van 2014.

The Me in You, a Belgium-based five-some, has crafted ‘Forgotten Clothes’(release: 10/02/'12, Noisesome Recordings), a debut album chockfull of quietly beautiful melodies and enchanting vocal harmonies. The band (°2009) is firmly rooted in musical history, and embraces influences ranging from The Byrds to Sparklehorse. A first demo was picked up by Noisesome Recordings (Customs, Motek), which offered TMIY the chance to record its first album. Sessions were held at the famous La Chapelle studios, with producer JorisCaluwaerts (Zita Swoon, The Go Find) at the helm. ‘Forgotten Clothes’ was mixed by Bob Hermans (Stijn, The Go Find).

Debut single ‘Girl in Armour’ was picked up by Studio Brussel and has so far spent quite a few weeks in De Afrekening, the station’s listener-selected singles list. Dutch music magazine Oor was very charmed by The Me in You. About ‘Girl in Armour’: “Plenty of sadness and summer night nostalgia. A song made for special memories.”

The Me in You have played a number of wildly successful opening gigs for Customs at the end of 2011, both in Belgium (AB, Vooruit, MOD, Depot) and The Netherlands. Dutch television station VPRO noted in its 3 voor 12 online music magazine that “The Me in You play beautiful pop songs in the style of Sparklehorse, Novastar and Nick Drake. The songs and band sound as though the Flemish quintet has been performing for years: lovely harmonies, a wondrous atmosphere. The gorgeous ‘Low Battery’ sings on in memory, and single ‘Girl In Armour’ is equally beautiful. Let’s hope things move quickly for The Me in You as soon as the debut album is released. The band deserves it.”
