Video: Tanlines – “Not the Same”

Tanlines Video: Tanlines   Not the Same

In the video for Tanlines‘ propulsive, melancholy new single “Not the Same,” the Brooklyn duo pulls a “Hey Ya,” inhabiting the roles of a band of doppelgangers all playing different instruments. Even though this particular treatment has been tried before, Tanlines–who directed the video–balance the inherent comedy of a musical clone army with their usual cool and a hint of sadness far removed from the bright lights that shown on Andre 3000’s fake band in the aforementioned Outkast hit.┬áThe clever clip hints at the subtle sonic variety the band has exhibited in 2012, while slyly playing off the chorus’ call, “we’re not the same!”
