UK band Shame have released a new single and video clip titled “Concrete”. The 5 piece group have a bit of a punk vibe going on, and the video reflects this.
When asked to describe the song, Charlie Steen the singer and lyricist for Shame said,
It’s about someone who’s trapped in a relationship and they’re being pummelled into surrender.It’s not about a physically abusive relationship – more an emotionally and psychologically draining one. The call-and-response vocals [between Steen and bassist Josh Finerty] is the central figure’s own internal dialogue. They are dealing with two different things that they don’t want to address.
Take a look, but don’t take it too seriously:
