Paris Texas has released a new music video for their song “PANIC!!!”, and it is a wild ride from start to finish. The Los Angeles-based duo is known for both its creative music videos and songs, and “PANIC!!!” is no exception.
The video opens on a mosh pit of fans, all dancing and wrestling with reckless abandon. As the duo begins to perform, the chaos only intensifies. The camera jumps from one scene to the next, capturing the energy and frenzy of the crowd. It’s one of those videos that you could watch 10x through and find new absurd visual details with each view.
Fights, cigarettes being ousted on a human face, and a general sense of anarchy capture the song’s feel to a T, at least for the first two minutes or so.
But amidst the chaos, there is a certain beauty to be found in the song itself. The lyrics and delivery are just as creative as the visual, matching the frenetic energy without flaw. And as a sort of “cool down,” the track takes a mellow turn toward the end which safely returns the viewer’s heart rate to normal.
“Paris Texas” clearly has an indifference toward public opinion, and this is evident in the unapologetic nature of the video. It may not be for the faint of heart, but for those who appreciate artistic expression and a bit of mayhem, “PANIC!!!” is a must-see.
Overall, Paris Texas has delivered a truly unique and beautiful piece of art that is sure to leave a lasting impression on those who watch it. Check out “PANIC!!!” below!
