Washington, D.C. indie rock group Clones of Clones have been working tirelessly on their upcoming debut album Monster Heart over the past year, having released an EP and a few music videos during that time. Set to hit shelves October 6th, the announcement comes alongside the release of the lead single “Somebody Else’.
Listing alternative rock groups Modest Mouse, Manchester Orchestra, and Minus the Bear as their major influences, “Somebody Else” incorporates slow-burning, laid-back density in the instrumentation. Contrasting textures from synthesizers and opposing acoustic instruments intertwine to create a lush backdrop for a catchy grunge-pop chorus.
The relaxing pace of the track is what makes it easy to enjoy: it doesn’t force your attention, it simple passes by and hopes you notice.
More of the band’s music is available to be streamed via their Soundcloud page.
