Gypsy & The Cat are out on the town again with the Cat Head in the latest video for track “I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else”. The quasi-feline figure that stalked the streets of Tokyo in “Inside Your Mind“, pursued by none other than Gypsy & the Cat‘s Lionel and Xavier, has returned. But everything isn’t quite as it seems…
Gypsy & The Cat’s Xavier Bacash explains the video concept was created by the duo’s director and friend Thom Lawrence, who was ultimately conducted by the song itself. “The video highlights escapism in all of our quotidian days. We all at some point want someone else’s car or house or hair or job or life; it’s a very normal mental process in the everyday,” he says.
“At the golf range, we felt it was important to show how people are so close to each other and out for the same thing, but at the same time they are like islands that won’t ever touch or speak.”
“I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else” is the first official single from Gypsy & the Cat‘s forthcoming third LP Virtual Islands.
