Your own butt: Long in continuous motion. She was on a musical pilgrimage… Street music, living room concerts, sofa beds, student soup kitchens, lyrics ‘on the road’ – the whole FEE. thing always goes forward. Towards happiness. Today long since on bigger stages. But never with your head in the clouds, from which money or a spotify stream could rain. Success, YES: on their terms – no fake, no writing camp, no musical all-weather jacket. And? Go!
In 2018 FEE. had finished their first album. Cheeky, direct and honest, the Frankfurt singer/songwriter played herself into the hearts of fans of handmade music and authentic lyrics with her debut album EIN ZIMMER KÜCHE BAD on tour throughout Germany. She also takes the stage in the opening acts of Katie Melua, Milow and Tom Odell, as if there were no other place for her. To make a stage her own, exactly her thing! And then? And then we talk turkey! At FEE, things are brought to the point, no ifs, ands or buts, no polished hook. Their songs: impetuous odes to life, bizarre observations, self-irony, sisterliness, everything that comes from the heart. Sometimes loud, sometimes quiet, sometimes ardent, sometimes intimate. FEE. is about expression, attitude, joy, sometimes tears. Just please, no nagging. What kind of attitude is that? None, right. There must be more if… if the butt joins in and doesn’t stay on the edge of the sofa in a brooding position.
“Get your ass to where you’re happy, whether it’s a house, a town by the sea or in the backyard.”
With their new single FEE. puts clear acoustic exclamation marks and signatures under their tangible song wisdom. The need to search for the honest goal of our wishes can hardly be more demanding and emphatic than with this lovingly snotty 2:40 number, which is carried by the DIY punk rock attitude in FEE.’s head. In the end, this power song closes a gaping gap: that of the powerful and intelligent songwriter music that we have felt since Wir Sind Helden got lost…
