As big fans of NYC duo Me Not You, we’re feeling a bit sheepish over missing out on their latest track Eventually, which seems to have surfaced a whole two long weeks ago. Our overdue rendezvous with the alt pop band’s new song has happened in a rather “eventual” manner, but we’re grateful that the this synth trickling, string glissading beauty didn’t slip us by completely. The duo’s members, who were previously involved in indie pop project Little Daylight, continue their path down a more moody simmering and dreamy pensive road with the dynamic piece, which is likely a taste off their next EP, Reckoning 2. You can snag the single from iTunes, here. Re-visit Me Not You’s prior offerings on Soundcloud, here.

Usually, when you hear the phrase “it’s me not you”, it’s at the end of a relationship during a particularly painful moment. It hurts, like a knife digging in, or a slap to the face, fashioned as a thinly veiled alibi for wrecking your heart. But take away the “it’s” and we’re left with Me Not You, a far different experience as we’ve learned over the course of the past year. NYC’s Me Not You, the band that arose out of the ashes of indie pop darlings Little Daylight, just finished an epic sold out tour around the U.S. and Canada with Gary Numan, and they need no alibi or excuse, apology or atonement, for how they make us feel with their distinctive brand of synth effusive rock and pop. In fact, we’re riddled with joy and intoxication over their new single, Everafter, the lead off song from their upcoming EP Reckoning 2, dropping on February 23rd. It’s a spacey atmospheric, sleek whirring suspension, reminiscent of Metric and Haerts. If every “me not you” we heard after a failed relationship was as sublime as Me Not You’s music, I’d aim for heartbreak rather than happily “ever after”, every time.

Earlier this year, the members of beloved indie pop band Little Daylight surprised us with a fresh new project named Me Not You, on which they showcased a very different side to their musical sensibility. The project from New York now returns with a dizzy whirling, sleek wheeling new tune named Kill The Noise. Not one ounce of you is going to want to kill this nebulous entrapping, turbid intoxicating “noise”. Dark electro rock, brooding alt pop, and 90′s alternative intermingle on the compelling piece. Re-visit Me Not You’s last two tracks on their Soundcloud, here.

It wasn’t long ago that we came to the realization that new NYC project Me Not You is in fact a new iteration of indie pop darlings Little Daylight, an unexpected surprise considering how different they sound.  Me Not You follows up on debut single Bulletproof with a high octane pop rock anthem named Relief. 90′s grunge and wiry noise punk leaves us dizzy spiraling with our pulse rates elevated. Relief saws and whirs like Garbage gone Wolf Alice. It’s a restless exhilarating ride from start to finish and a cathartic release of that pent up stress knotting up our stomachs.

All the sad end of year break up news aside, there’s one startling huge band announcement of sorts that will surely be met with wonder and awe. Just two weeks ago, my colleague Nick shared with you a magnificent debut named Bulletproof from a band named Me Not You. This week, we learned that Me Not You is a new iteration of what we once knew and loved as Little Daylight. That’s right, this is a paradigm shift alert! With the unveiling of the big surprise comes a lavishly layered, rich quivering remix of Bulletproof by St. Louis’ Dylan Brady. The trip hop traipsing rendition of the single is being compared by many to Sneaker Pimps. I also detect some Zero 7 and Massive Attack in the bold clattering, squishy wonking cut. It’s obvious Little Daylight is heading in a brand new direction as Me Not You, and we’re more than excited to embrace their thrilling new vision. In the meantime, we’ll be lost in the grand hallways of Dylan Brady’s majestic remix. Re-visit the original debut below, a bold slashing alt treat that enthralls with a sliver of Phantogram and a dusting of Sleigh Bells.

Immersive soundscape by Me Not You on their debut track ‘Bulletproof’. The New York duo generates an off-kilter atmosphere of uncertainty that swirls into a direction of hope for new beginnings. This duo I liken to Phantogram and Purity Ring.
