Spring & I – Believe Me
Ditte Angelo and Marie Friis are two self-taught electronic producers who started collaborating on music back in 2017. Under the moniker Spring & I, they have released a handful of singles and remixes to date. With their new single “Believe Me,” Spring & I announce an upcoming EP for early 2023. Their debut EP will offer more of their eclectic mix of dry and raw energy with melodic, pensive moments. “Believe Me” opens with hard-hitting drums and intriguing vocal processing, setting the vibe for the track. The song then takes a few surprising, lighter turns but without ever letting go of the brooding mood. I can very well picture “Believe Me” being used in a movie soundtrack to enhance an action or suspense scene.
Asked about their collaboration, the two Copenhagen-based musicians say:
The first tones were created under the pandemic, and despite the many frustrations the lockdown caused, it gave us room to seek deeper in who we are and what we want to create together. “Believe Me” emerged from a strong need to take back some of the control you are suppressed by as a woman when you live in a society with uneven, rigid power structures. The song almost wrote itself and encapsulates a drive to gain redemption, and set the tone for more new tracks to come.
