Rezz & Grabbitz released their new collaboration a little less than three weeks ago, and we’re still obsessed with “Someone Else.” Combining impeccable production from both Rezz and Grabbitz, as well as a vocal performance that makes the track what it is, not to mention those amazing guitar chords toward the end, it’s easily one of Rezz’s most traditionally musical tracks yet.
The music video opens up on a woman tied to a chair as the camera furiously scans the room for various pieces of evidence for what has just taken place — computers, lots of cables, and a dead woman lying on the ground. Through the course of the video, it appears that the dead woman’s consciousness has been transferred to the woman in the chair, who’s actually some sort of android being controlled by someone else.
As Rezz revealed in a new interview with Alt Press, the video depicts the idea that “who we present as on the outside doesn’t always match with who we truly are.”
Grabbitz’s voice provides the epic narration for the video, as his face is shown on computer screens from the very beginning. It’s actually impressive how accurately the music video team was able to convey the message of the song to the visual medium, but the result is nothing short of thrilling.
The final shot is of Grabbitz’s digital visage on a computer screen, reminding us, “you are someone else.”
