PANIC SHACK – ” I Don’t Really Like It “

Posted: October 3, 2020 in MUSIC

Cardiff-based post-punk quartet Panic Shack first burst onto the scene back in February with the snarling statement of intent, Who’s Got My Lighter? That was quickly followed by Jiu Jits-You, a song every bit as good as its title would suggest. Like both those tracks, their latest offering, I Don’t Really Like It, was produced by Tom Rees of Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard and released through local label, Clwb Creative Records.

Despite being short on words, “It’s literally 4 lines”, “I Don’t Really Like It” is not a song short on lyrical intent, as the band explain the track, “is for anyone who has felt spoken down to, patronised or ‘mansplained’ to“. Musically, it seems to channel the vibrant feminist-punk of Dream Nails, with a more angular, brooding quality reminiscent of fellow Welsh-wonders, Adwaith. The track starts off sedate, and then suddenly explodes into life as racing guitars compete with rapid drums to see who can propel the song forward with greater intensity. Panic Shack formed with the simple aim of doing it for themselves, “we just wanted to give it a go and have a bit of a laugh“, in making that sound so good they might just inspire others to do the same, they make you feel like a musical revolution isn’t just possible, it’s almost inevitable.
