Two summers and two winters have passed since the last record by this four-piece from Stockholm and the path that was pursued on „Before People Forget Sound“ is steadily kept on „Body Me“. Meine kleine Deutsche are still grinding on the edges of Punk, Electro, Garage and Pop. But the lyrics have become even darker, more interrogative and more critical than on their last records.
In a world full of empty truisms it‘s their (though desolate) form of quest for meaning which distinguishes Meine kleine Deutsche’s works, supported by Martin Stenberg‘s cutting guitar that unfolds it‘s full momentum. In times, in which a misunderstood and misused concept of melancholy is romanticised as the ductus of free development, this kind of self-deprecation is an appropriate remedy against everyday phrasemongering.
“Body Me” isn’t nice, “Body Me” hurts!
