The song and video are brutal criticisms of the Irish government's handling of social issues, accompanied by even more brutal instrumentals.
Dublin-based punk outfit Panik Attaks have just released a music video for 'The Boom is Back,' the lead single off their recently released White Water Rafting EP.
The track is a fast and heavy politically-charged punk song about social issues in Dublin. Panik Attaks criticise the government's handling of homelessness, poverty, drugs and more for three minutes over pounding instrumentals. 'The Boom is Back' channels rage and frustration, as well as an overwhelming sense of urgency pushed further by the music's fast pace.
The video is just as no-nonsense as the track. Their chorus of "Leo, Leo, fuck you" is accompanied by a compilation of clips of Leo Varadkar's face. The rest of the video shows more lo-res clips of violence and homelessness in the city. See the full video below.
White Water Rafting is available now via Bandcamp.
