Reminding us of alt-J and Arcade Fire, Me & the Monster hypnotic vocals and sexy bass lines will make you want to dance around a campfire with feathers in your hair.

indieBerlinHow did you come up with the name?

Me&theMonster: we like the “monster within us” concept and worked around it.

indieBerlinHow did you get together as a band?

Me&theMonster: We’re studying at the same university and got along well. We had similar musical taste and thought it would be a good idea to play together. Suddenly we were rehearsing every day of the week and made it official.

indieBerlin: How does the songwriting process work for you / in your band?

Me&theMonster: We jam together in some rehearsals and take ideas from there. The good ones get developed and the lyrics are written for it. After we do the structure together.

Me&theMonster: fantasy adventure!
