Cloud Nothings just released their video for "I'm Not Part of Me" off of their excellent new release, Here and Nowhere Else.
The video follows a group of four girls having a slumber party where they take drugs, drink alcohol and play Rock Band. Cloud Nothings frontman Dylan Baldi only shows up briefly on flying iPhone screens while crudely made graphics of music notes, eyeballs and tacos float around the screen. It's a fun video, if you can get past the eerie bulgy eyes the girls get from drug consumption.
Baldi doesn't use the typical structure of verse-chorus-verse-chorus this time around. Instead, the chorus, bridge and verse are undefined with both sounding like a proper hook. The song is about moving on and leaving the past behind with Baldi singing on the second verse, "Leave it all to memory of what we did when we were young." Without Attack on Memory's angst and the band's former producer, Steve Albini, "I'm Not Part of Me" is the most optimistic the band has ever sounded. Watch the video above.
The album is available now through Carpark Records. You can stream Here and Nowhere Else here on Zumic.
