Listen to “I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else” onNoisey or below
“I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else” is rolling in synthy, chillwavey goodness that will have you dancing your way through figuring out what you’re doing with your life. This song is an absolute existential banger that will have you pressing ‘play’ over and over. – NOISEY
“Change my brain and take my heart out. Guess you’re doing fine without it.” — We all go through times when we wish we could just live another life, one without the troubles and sorrows of our own. This is an anthem for those with that longing for escape. The second single off their upcoming album, “I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else” follows up on the success of last month’s “Inside Your Mind” which topped charts and got playlisted around the world. Gypsy & the Cat are sure to continue winning over listeners on their mission to shower the world in glorious Australian indie pop.
Boasting ARIA and Hype Machine charting singles, three songs in the triple j Hottest 100, plus international chart and touring feats in places like Germany, Denmark and Sweden; Gypsy & the Cat and success are no longer just flirting with each other. They’re shacking up and settling down. Champions of a distinctive style that’s continually influenced their contemporaries, the Melbourne duo have an unmistakable sound that’s been described as “the epitome of Australian indie-pop.” (Acid Stag)
This new stuff? There’s no doubt it’s Gypsy & The Cat. Roll call: punchy falsettos, walls of dreamy synths and a reason to dance? All present. Mixed by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Neon Indian, The Flaming Lips) it’s another sampling of the full-length album expected later this year. Spending a chunk of the last year in Japan to channel inspiration from a myriad of creative influences, “I Just Wanna Be Somebody Else” and “Inside Your Mind” indicate a new muse. A new era.
