From Fall River, Massachusetts, singer-songwriter and rock recording artist Dominic Thompson drops visceral and striking new music video for his latest single, "Panic Attack."
Dominic Thompson began playing guitar at 17, and since then, he's gone on to sharpen his artistic abilities by taking lessons at the School of Rock Seekonk and TJ's Music in Fall River. Thompson experienced the trials and tribulations of social anxiety at a rather young age, forcing him to finish high school online after constant bullying.
Dominic Thompson recently released a powerful and exciting music video for a not-so-exciting subject, entitled "Panic Attack." The song itself is like something off of a 1999 Green Day album, and Dominic Thompson holds a specific tone and persona as a punky and charisma-filled Billy Joe Armstrong.
Focussing on the music video for "Panic Attack," the visuals open with a frustrated edit of Thompson that later transitions into the wailing lead guitar introduction and a psychedelic spiral while Thompson and his guitar make their way to the foreground. As Thomspon begins to sing of the dreaded panic attack, the visuals continue to flash bright colors and chop/distort his image to resemble our cluttered minds mid panic attack.
The video does not lack energy whatsoever; Dominic Thompson jumps around and smashes on his guitar while drenching us in all sorts of attitude and charisma through his gripping performance and relatable lyrics. If there's one thing Dominic Thompson wants his music to do, it's spread awareness of life's difficulties and allow listeners to fully relate, and "Panic Attack" does exactly that.
