Quiet Hollers are back with an excellent new single, Addicted.

It is their first release since last year’s sophomore album Amen Breaks, and carries on that record’s theme of tackling important socio-political issues.

Addiction is a powerful rumination on opiate addiction – frontman Shadwick Wilde has struggled with addiction since adolescence. Although he didn’t intend for it to be a “drug song” necessarily, its inception came at a time when his family was struggling with the loss of his mother’s brother, who died of a fentanyl overdose so he felt it was important to acknowledge how deeply vulnerable we all are to these things, and how serious that problem really is.

Have a listen – it is a perfect mix of alt-country shot through with grungy guitars and a frank, world weary vocal.
