Twenty One Pilots are back- sort of. That’s the latest theory circulating the skeleton clique right now. But we’re beside ourselves with excitement either way. Plus, it does help when their latest single, ‘Shy Away,’ is a certified THP bop!
It’s no secret that Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph are two insanely talented musicians and songwriters. ‘Shy Away’ is simply another demonstration of this. Musically speaking, we’re hyped about the retro vibe carried over from ‘Level of Concern,’ and we’re placing our honey bee bets that their upcoming record will be a bonanza of psychedelic nostalgia. If you’re looking for a track with the groove, vibey bass lines, tight drums, and one of the catchiest synthy piano melodies, then this is the place to be!
There’s another thing that TØP are experts at: music videos. We haven’t stopped watching the music video for ‘Shy Away’ since it dropped this week! Shot just TEN days ago in Tampa by AJ Favicchio and Miles Cable, we have to salute the speedy editing that must’ve gone into this visual masterpiece. The wide-angle shots? We love them. The animation? Slayed the game. The kaleidoscopic lights? Sign us up. There isn’t anything we don’t like about these three minutes of good vibes.
The Easter Eggs
Here at THP, we love a good concept album and universe. From the looks of things, we’re all still stuck in Dema, and Clancy (our pal from Trench) is dead. Wanna know why? The name of TØP’s upcoming album Scaled and Icy is an anagram for Clancy Is Dead. Along with a bunch of other hidden clues, like the word ‘destroy’ on the dragon artwork- we’re about to lose our minds with all the theories currently circulating on Twitter!
Want more from the pilots? You’re in luck because they’re performing a Livestream on May 21st to celebrate the release of Scaled and Icy. You can grab tickets here and while you’re at it, you can pre-save the record here.
Can’t wait that long? Don’t worry honey, you can stream ‘Shy Away’ right here till then.
