Quiet Hollers Get Their Asses Kicked in “Pressure” Music Video

Quiet Hollers are back with a new music video for “Pressure,” and it a real doozie!
Louisville’s indie darlings Quiet Hollers. The band recruited pro wrestler Kongo Kong to destroy them in the ring for their incredible new music video for “Pressure,” one of the standout post-punk tracks on their new album Amen Breaks that came out July 7th via sonaBLAST! (buy/stream HERE). The band has also announced a US tour in August/September, before a European tour this Fall in October/November (all dates below).
 
Regarding the video, Quiet Hollers’ frontman and primary songwriter Shadwick Wilde says, “The lyrics of “Pressure” are some of the darkest I’ve ever written… so we felt it was important to contrast them with a video that was pure fun. They deal with questions of self-image, depression, masculinity, and how they relate to life in the music industry. In the video, both Kongo Kong and the band are at the mercy of their chosen profession, pitted against one another so that others might profit from their talents. What better way to talk about toxic masculinity and mental health than through the lens of professional wrestling– a sport in which those two issues have had far-reaching consequences. It also serves as a metaphor for the life of a touring band. You show up to a strange building in an unfamiliar place, not knowing what to expect or what is expected of you… and sometimes it really beats the shit out of you. We also just wanted to see each other get thrown around by the biggest, baddest dude we could find. Fortunately for us, that turned out to be Kongo Kong, who has traveled the world to perform his art, as far as India and Japan, and was able to coach us through each move.
