Clones of Clones: Somebody Else

Clones of Clones is an American indie rock band from Washington, D.C. composed of members Ben Payes, Todd Evans, Nick Scialli, and Brian Abbott. On their debut EP, the band worked with producer Justin Long (U.S. Royalty). They have played shows alongside bands such as Sam Roberts Band, The Trews, SomeKindaWonderful, and Saintseneca. In the summer of 2012, after their former band The Blue Line dissolved, Payes, Scialli, and then-guitarist Dave Chaletzky recruited drummer Brian Abbott to start a new musical project. The name “Clones of Clones” was conceived as an ironic play on words; Payes has stated that they have always strived for “uniqueness with a hint of familiarity.” The band recorded the “Neighborhoods” EP and began playing shows to support its release. In early 2013, Chaletzky left the band and was replaced by Todd Evans of Florida’s A New Way To Live Forever, completing the current line-up. Wikipedia┬«.

Clones of Clones: Somebody Else

With three months to go in their senior year of college, Ben Payes and Nick Scialli decided to start a band, ‘Three Months to Live.’ However, they were asked to change their name on the way to their very first gig, a cancer benefit. And so began the many twists and turns of their musical career together. Clones of Clones is a reminder of this history; still present–after all their collaborations and the influences of current drummer Brian Abbott and new guitar/synth switch-hitter Todd Evans–is the musical and songwriting spark that brought Ben and Nick together a hundred months ago.

Most recently, the band released their second EP, I Don’t Need Your Love, under the direction of producer Ted Comerford (Jukebox the Ghost, Army of Me). Their new sound is dark and dynamic grunge rock, with catchy melodies and lyrics full of despair and heartbreak. The EP is the prelude to their first full length, due in late 2015.

Clones of Clones: Somebody Else Lyrics:
I count, Ive been counting the…
I see, I see through your…
I count, I’ve been counting the fights
I see, I’ve seen through your disguise
One too, your one too many lies
I can tell, I can tell on the phone
Little miss, you’ll miss me more than your home
I melt, the bottles standing alone

And it breaks my heart
To see you in pieces
And where we got off too a rough start
And now I’m leaving
To be somebody else, somebody else for now
Somebody else, somebody else for now

Little nerves, nervous how you would take this
Your brittle bones, it’s to easy to break them
We’re so numb, we’ll take it easy for now

And it breaks my heart
To see you in pieces
And where we got off too a rough start
And now I’m leaving
To be somebody else, somebody else for now
Somebody else, somebody else for now
I count, Ive been counting
And it breaks my heart
To see you in pieces
And where we got off to a rough start
And now I’m leaving
To be somebody else, somebody else for now
Somebody else, somebody else for now. Somebody else, somebody else for now.
Somebody else, somebody else for now.
