THE SHABS release Lyric Video

(Photographer – Luke Daniel)

Can You Hear Us at the Back is the first single and album title track from Cape Town based South African folk punk band The Shabs. The album is set for release on the 1st March 2019.

The video which was designed by double bassist Ryan McArthur and animated by Studio Bolland is a full on 90’s punk nostalgia flashback. “The lyrics in the video are made out of stickers of bands (mostly 90’s punk bands) that we loved, looked up to and imitated as teenagers. It’s our homage to the bands that ultimately set our lives on this path.” Said the band. Ryan McArthur goes on to explain the inspiration behind the track itself, “We wrote this song about the dichotomy of being in a band. On one hand it’s a job with a lot of struggles, uncertainties and rejection, which most people never see. But on the other hand, we get to do what we love, share our message and make our inner 16-year-olds proud.”
