Panic Slowly’ opens with new single Say Something, which documents the story of the band’s investors and how the move to LA fell through. It is slow-burning and mellow, and displays the band’s ability to combine sweet guitar rhythms and starkly sad, yet beautiful, lyrics. Same As Me keeps this tone going strong, with deeply memorable lyrics like you’re the last branch breaking my fall/ you’re the footbridge I could never follow running throughout. The album closes on a deeply melancholic note with the piano driven Wide Awake. The track dives into a full on gospel choir sound, ending the album in a very different place from where it began. Panic Slowly’ is clearly the work of a band not afraid to play around with a host of influences, but it is also an album which never deviates too far from a sound The Shoos have clearly perfect as their own.
The Shoos, Battlescars Launch Party, Dublin. by Edwina Elizabeth O'Connor. 0. The Shoos – Battlescars from Panic Slowly, 2012. Patrick (from The Life of Stuff) and I were invited along to The Shoos launch party of their new single ‘Battlescars‘ from their 2012 and second album ‘Panic Slowly‘. It was actually a double whammy as the lads were also filming the new video for their song ‘That’s What She Does To Me‘, with Live Graffiti Art, which was carried out and photographed (it’s going to be time-lapse style) by the artistic Jeff, Paddy and Michae. air play lads!
