Clones of Clones – That Wasn’t Me

Clones of Clones is well known for rocking hard, but the quartet dials the intensity into a slower emotional ballad on “That Wasn’t Me”, the title track from their recent EP from March. Boston freelance illustrator Emily Hancock, creator of cotton-candy infused paintings (seriously, go look) as well as previous album cover art for Clones of Clones, contriuted to the art-driven music video for the song, and it’s really worth watching without us spoiling the whole thing. If you dig this, check out Hancock’s Patreon page for more deliciously artistic ways to support.

Clones of Clones – Somebody Else

A vibrant music scene needs more than just great bands. Bloggers, show promoters, labels, photogs and podcasters (ahem) all play a vital part in getting crowds interested and involved. DC is rather lucky to have a videographer like Nigel Lyons to craft such polished visuals for acts as diverse as Paperhaus, The North Country, Outputmessage, ACME and the Jonathan Parker’s Panel Counsel jazz ensemble. Indie rockers Clones of Clones are the latest to get the video treatment from Lyons for their new single “Somebody Else” off their upcoming full length Monster Heart. The lovesick plot might seem straightforward at first, but the finish is worth a second glance.

Clones of Clones – Float On

To bridge the gap between the 2014 EP I Don’t Need Your Love and their full length album anticipated for late 2015, indie rock band Clones of Clones worked up their favorite cover song for an actual full single release. “Float On”, the massive 2004 single by Modest Mouse, gets worked over by singer Ben Payes and his talented rock crew, and the result is a pleasing hybrid between the original and CoC’s electronic rock sound. The band even shot this haltingly charming music video, showing Payes in full on Corey Hart dreamboat mode dancing and playing near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, shooting one frame every six seconds for two hours. Float on, indeed.

Clones of Clones – I Don’t Need Your Love video

Clones of Clones spice up their radio friendly modern rock with just enough profanity to keep things real. They’ve got a bit of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in their sound, with both loud and quiet parts echoing the angsty themes of their new single “I Don’t Need Your Love”. A new 3 song release for the single goes up for preorder today, dropping fully on November 11th, along with the A side’s music video directed by Adam Peditto.
Strange coindicence: Adam also directed many music videos for George Alley, a musician and performance artist in Philly who lived across the hall from me in college. George and I bonded over our shared love of 80s synthpop band Dead or Alive, and I had no idea he even made music videos until I saw Adam’s site. Small world!
Anyway, check out the brand new debut music video for Clones of Clones!
