MeMe Detroit to Release New Single 'Will you be my Lie?' on 17th May + Live Dates





Following 2018’s ‘Life in the now’ EP, Birmingham singer/multi-instrumentalist Maria Rodriguez - aka MeMe Detroit – re-releases track ‘Will you be my Lie?’ as a single alongside brand new remixes by producer DantannaBeatz.

Originally recorded along with band members Paris Moon Fennell (bass) and Barney Such (drums), ‘Will you be my lie?’ covers themes of infidelity and faithfulness. Written in the first person as a character, the song follows the plight of a woman lost and unhappy in her relationship which leads to her getting her head turned by someone other than her partner. Equally excited and troubled at the prospect of something happening, we’re taken on a journey into her imagination and through her inner thoughts of what’s gotten her to this place and whether the risk would all be worth it.


“‘Will You Be My Lie?’ is propelled by pounding beats and sweeping melodic hooks that will stick in the ears on first listen. With a gentle romanticism, it soon builds to an anthemic, emotion-fuelled slice of raw rock ‘n’ roll, showcasing once again MeMe’s innovative songwriting skills” – Get in her Ears

This track follows previous singles De Moe, Churchside Inn and Soc Med Junkies - which are all featured on the e.p.
