Someone Who Isn’t Me have creatively fused the hypnotic embrace of electronic rock with a conceptually provocative and visually captivating video for this latest release. Fresh from the album DANCE WITH YOU, Pinku brings together fine story-telling and the seductive swagger of an indie-pop classic by means of a quickly memorable audio-experience.
Feeling somewhat Depeche Mode inspired, there’s a nostalgic aura to the way this song has been presented. With that, the notably artistic and expressive video makes for a striking historical journey. Offering contemporary portraits of five female biblical figures – Jezebel, Lilith, Virgin Mary, Salome and Delilah – the video is as haunting as it is compelling, and the music in line with this helps make certain you walk away knowing you’ve experienced something.
Rather than feeding further into the current musical landscape, SWIM make up their own rules, driving with depth of thought and the full embrace of multi-layered musical escapism.
This release could well be a huge step forwards for the under the radar band – they offer equal parts entertainment, skill, and intrigue; all of which is incredibly refreshing at present. Pinku is a fascinating release that speaks volumes for the talent and intentions of the band.
