Shaun is the second single from south London garage punk trio, PLAY DEAD. Following their debut, Whitstable, which received wide praise from the likes of When The Horn Blows, Clunk Magazine, Left Bank Magazine and Joyzine, Shaun shows the grittier side of PD while maintaining their idiosyncratic tongue-in-cheek.
It’s a story about Ollie’s nan’s boyfriend, a gentle giant with a short fuse who got arrested for punching a man off his bike in Brixton. He enjoys pies, pints and Coldplay.
About Born out of bedroom boredom, PLAY DEAD are three teenagers from Herne Hill with sharp tongues and an appetite for noise.
Influences The Chats, Slaves, IDLES, The Streets, Shame, Sleaford Mods
