Watch We Were Promised Jetpacks’ animated “Not Me Anymore” video
Scottish indie rock vets We Were Promised Jetpacks will release new album Enjoy the View is out September 10 and the new single from it is "Not Me Anymore," an especially dreamy song that floats on layers of harmonies and atmospheric guitars and synths.
For its animated, interstellar video, the group turned to Adam Keene & Mathew Marchlewski, who say “The concept of not being yourself anymore evokes an image that never ceases to change. An evolution of life in motion. Labels peel away and leave the underneath unrecognizable. That’s where we connected with the song, and that’s where we went.” The band add, "Having nailed the 'Repeating Patterns' video we had no hesitation in asking Adam and Mathew to take on the task of bringing “Not Me Anymore” to our screens. They created another world which recognized that sometimes you just need to move on and keep going!"
The "Not Me Anymore" video premieres in this post and you can watch below.
