Winchester 7 & The Runners bring the fuzz with their latest single ‘When the World Stops Spinning’

Ellen Oakley

A wave of fuzz like no other, Winchester 7 & The Runners, has created a track with all the bite and musicality of 90’s grunge with the melody and quirk of alt lyricism. ‘When the World Stops Spinning’ is chocked full of addictive riffs, a memorable breakdown and a joyful vibe that transports the listener to a place of reckless fun.

With a dynamic opening that mimics live playing, leading into a strong riff-fronted tune accompanied by earthy vocals that add a lightness to the distorted backing, ‘When the World Stops Spinning’ starts as bold as it ends.

The driving percussion is steady, grounding the track as it bleeds into a solo that feels reminiscent of classic 70s rock, with extra sludge. Somehow the song feels like it’s packed an entire culture of psychedelic rock, grunge nuances, and distinctive imagery in its just over three minutes run time. It stands as a real ode to Winchester 7 & The Runners’ talent and a tribute to the band’s influences. Not only is the style and presentation invigorating, but the whole track is lead by an electric ukulele which adds another layer of personality to the performance.

With a catchy beat that encourages listeners to dance their problems away, chant worthy lyrics and an overall aura of charm, ‘When the World Stops Spinning’ is the perfect soundtrack to any post lockdown adventures or for a kick of motivation when your weeknight is dragging. Winchester 7 & The Runners is refreshingly candid and genuine, combining various alternative scenes to a wall of sound and festivity. If you feel the lockdown blues, the addition of this song to any playlist will instantly rectify that.

Defiant New Single ‘Mean Rock n Roller’ is vintage MeMe Detroit

“MeMe Detroit bridges the gaps between grunge, indie and Blues rock…” Louder than War

“This is the kind of person you get jealous of because they’re an incredibly talented singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer…” Janice Long – BBC Radio

“Great voice”Johnny Doom

MeMe Detroit teases new track following the overwhelming positive reaction from the previous releases. Mean Rock n Roller Promises to be a rebellious anthem for anyone who just wants to be themselves rather than conforming to societal norms, lead by a woman who wears these values not just on her sleeve, but in her clothes and artistic makeup.

Pure passion and feelings are poured into each of MeMe’s records and live performances, which are self described as “Uplifting Angst” by the British/Columbian artist, perfectly capturing her Riot Girl energy whilst also keeping something super unique, combining gritty-grungy vocals with power-indie.

MeMe is also one of those insanely talented people that are just stupidly good at everything, with her featuring on the vocals, as well as guitar, bass and synth, with bandmate Kallum McEwen backing up the track with the drums.

The band are well known for their explosive energy both on the stage and off, with hundreds of positive reviews from their live shows, and raving critiques from BBC Introducing, while the band have landed regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio, Janice Long’s show on BBC Radio Wales and have featured on Fresh on the Net’s ‘Fresh Faves’.

If you are looking for a new punk track that makes you want to don your creeper boots and stick on a spiked collar, watch this space, or check out some of their previous releases if you just cant wait! A favorite is “How she Runs”, which you can watch the video for below.

MeMe is currently rallying fans from around the globe to crowdsource and put together a new music video for Mean Rock n Roller, which, if anything like some of their previous videos, features a short introductory story before the music kicks in, giving us more insight and context to the track.

Keep an eye on their socials for updates on this, along with exclusive live streams on their social media, full of high powered grunge and attitude.

Mean Rock N Roller is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song that we had written as a bit of fun but at the same time says “fuck you” to the limiting beliefs that are pressed on us by society as we grow up. You can basically be, do or have anything you want in life when you put your mind to it, so never settle. It’s pointless”.

Keep up to date with all news related to MeMe Detroit, including the release of the single on the 30th October this year!
