Milwaukee’s Vic And Gab are frequently compared to fellow sister-sister act Tegan And Sara, and not without good reason. Beyond the surface similarities, both groups share a knack for ingratiating vocal tics and perfectly pitched pop compositions. But while Tegan And Sara are hell-bent on turning themselves into glittery, dance-friendly pop stars, Vic And Gab seem content with perfecting the timeless art of bouncy indie rock scored by good old fashioned guitar, bass, and drums. The new video for the duo’s “I Haven’t Seen You”—a standout from 2012’s Bridges And Guns—is similarly straightforward yet delightful. It even comes complete with an adorable choreographed dance scene!
But it’s the “band-performing-on-top-of-a-building-at-night” sections that truly endear us to this video. Clearly, these shots are a nod to Guns N’ Roses’ seminal “Don’t Cry” video from 1991—or, you know, the thousands of other videos that feature a band playing on top of a high-rise building while a helicopter flies overhead.
