K-pop boyband Stray Kids have unveiled an energetic music video for ‘Maniac’, the title tack of their brand-new mini-album ‘Oddinary’.
In the captivating new visual, the boyband explore various locations of a deserted town in an alternate dimension, which seemingly sits on the edge of the world. The members later perform the song in front of a giant, graffitied brain, before being transported back to the real world at the end.
“Maniac, going crazy, like I have a loose scre, maniac / Spinning, going crazy, maniac / Walk like frankenstein / Maniac, maniac,” the boyband chant on the chorus, while stomping and shaking their heads in the accompanying choreography.
‘Maniac’ is the lead single of the boyband’s brand-new mini-album ‘Oddinary’, which arrived at the same time. The project comprises seven tracks, including two unit songs ‘Waiting For Us’ by Bang Chan, Lee Know, Seungmin and I.N, and ‘Muddy Water’ by Changbin, Hyunjin, Han and Felix.
“This is our first comeback for 2022. It’s been awhile since we released a mini-album,” said the group’s leader Bang Chan during a press conference for the project’s release, per journalist Jeff Benjamin. “With the title ‘Oddinary’, we want to bring the message that everyone has their own ‘odd’ in them, that’s totally and ordinary.”
Earlier this month, Stray Kids announced that their second world tour ‘Maniac’ is set to kick off in South Korea this spring. Following an opening performance in Seoul, the group will perform several shows in the US and Japan between May to July in support of their forthcoming mini-album.
