Video: Black Manila “Shake That Thing”

by @thoughtontracks


Black Manila is a teenage garage-punk trio from South London. The group just dropped a tasteless video for its debut single “Shake That Thing.” The track will be released as a 7″ on upstart imprint RIP Records. The release is scheduled to drop on April 1. Black Manila may be in need of a new director of video content, but what they lack in production quality they compensate for in balls-out ferocity. The band has a handful of singles available for streaming via Bandcamp. Black Manila’s sound is a blues-heavy, fuzz pop focus with its sights on the essence of rock n’ roll. Those in search of some stateside counterparts need look no further than Gap Dream, Criminal Hygiene, The Orwells, and Natural Child. Watch the video for “Shake that Thing” below.

    I think the video is fantastic! It’s so much fresher and more vibrant than most of the other grey and moody music videos coming out of the UK right now. Great track
