Tanlines are the only band I’ve ever seen to make an entire crowd laugh to open up a live set. I won’t try and recreate their humor as I’d butcher it (check out their Twitter for a taste), but the humor loosen everyone up and had the crowd dancing despite the mid afternoon festival sun. The new visual accompaniment for “Not The Same” continues in the spirit of lightheartedness, as The Creator’s Project has transformed the video experience into something more akin to playing with Photoshop while listening to music. It’s enjoyable, and great excuse to enjoy the Mixed Emotions cut again. Check it out here.
In other Tanlines news, the Brooklyn duo will be opening for Vampire Weekend on some of their April dates, as well as hitting Coachella and opening for Hot Chip in NYC. Also be sure to check out the DJ Spoko remix of the track as you debate the merits of the Stonehenge background vs the live fish background.
