ARIA winning alt-rockers The Panics have release a video clip for the official second single, and title track of their critically acclaimed, fifth studio album ‘Hole In Your Pocket‘ which is out now via Dew Process / UMA.

Keeping in step with the legacy of the Melbourne via Perth outfit, the evocative track ‘Hole In Your Pocket‘ takes its lyrical inspiration from scenes of Australian landscape.

The band’s front man and principal songwriter Jae Laffer explains;

The song comes out of looking at the centre of the WA mining boom through the eyes of my tourist self, taking in the extremes of the area for the first time and putting myself in the shoes of some of the local people who have watched and felt the rapid changes of the area. I wrote this song up in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The land and industry is very visual up there and wrote it from the perspective of an older man describing the changing landscape of his ancestral home – seeing the beauty of a place being bought and sold in front of him.

Musically the song recalls the production and energy of the likes Echo And The Bunnymen and further reveals the narrative set forth by the first single ‘Weatherman,‘ the heralded comeback track they released last August, their first new material as a band since 2011’s ‘Rain On The Hummingwire‘.

Check out the new video clip below.
