Phantastical Phantasy Sound chap has new flick online

The Willy Wonka of wonk pop Connan Mockasin has opened another window into his elfishly eccentric world via the video for the Prince-drowning-in-a-chocolate-river sounding ‘Do I Make You Feel Shy?’ But the clip, set in the very English surroundings of Charlie’s karaoke bar in Manchester, is anything but fantastical. It finds the New Zealand singer-songwriter awkwardly crooning along to the track, bringing to mind the shabby world of Peter Kay sitcom Phoenix Nights. Even so, it’s a befitting extension of Mockasin’s oddball persona.

Connan is set to embark on a US tour throughout May before returning to European shores for a string of summer festival dates. Golden tickets do not apply here.

31 May – Primavera Sound, Barcelona 7 June 2014 – Field Day, London 7-10 August 2014 – Wilderness Festival, Oxford 15-16 August 2014 – Jabberwocky, London 29-31 August 2014 – End Of The Road Festival, Salisbury
