Quiet Hollers have announced a new album Amen Breaks, a record that draws parallels with the cultural crossovers and the anxieties of the 1970s, a decade marred by division, political corruption, and terrorism.
Long standing MM faves (they delivered our second favourite tune of 2015), the band have expanded their shape-shifting palate to include vintage drum machines and samples. On Amen Breaks, Quiet Hollers raise questions of spirituality, sexuality, and mental illness in tones that range from the cinematic to the psychedelic.
The first single from it is Medicine, a compelling personal story from frontman Shadwick Wilde about crippling anxiety, depression, existential malaise, and society’s attitudes toward medication and addiction.
Have a listen. The album is out on the 7th July.Follow @madmackerel
