Panic Shack have announced their debut EP Baby Shack, due for release on 8th April 2022 via Brace Yourself Records.
To celebrate, the Cardiff four-piece have released a video for their new single Mannequin Man.
“Mannequin Man is a song we wrote about a guy we met in London who works as a literal, real-life mannequin,” the band explains. “We were so impressed by his mannequin impersonation that we wrote the song about him on the Megabus home the next day. Contrary to popular belief there is no deeper meaning to MM although you can take from the lyrics what you will.”
“The video was filmed during the height of COVID, so unfortunately we couldn’t get to London and decided a green screen was the next best thing,” they add. “Concept-wise, we picked a theme and ran with it (no pun intended) doing what we do best (punching and shouting) in front of a camera. It was shot in about an hour and edited by our good friend Ren Faulkner all the way back in March 2021. A slight problem we’ve come to realise is that we all change our hairstyles so frequently we look unrecognisable. But will we stop? No.”
Baby Shack is available to pre-order in various formats HERE.
Panic Shack will play alongside Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard on 10th March 2022 at Scala, London. You can also catch the band at The Great Escape in May.
