Who are these up-and-comers that have been the buzz of the local Berlin scene lately? If you want to find out, come to the next Basement Bash on Friday 19th at Marie-Antoinette.
Remember the movie “Where the wild things are”? remember how you felt like your soul was turned into an innocent hurricane of beauty? 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.
indieBerlin: How did you come up with the name?
Me&theMonster: we like the “monster within us” concept and worked around it.
indieBerlin: How 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.
indieBerlin: If your music was a movie, which genre would it be in?
Me&theMonster: fantasy adventure!
we think vegetarian people are awesome

Me&theMonster: we think vegetarian people are awesome.
indieBerlin: What was the nicest compliment you once got?
Me&theMonster: That our bass is sexy.
indieBerlin: How do you feel about covering a song?

indieBerlin: With whom would you never share the stage with?

We want to have a big castle and make concerts and festivals in it.
