Stuck at home and feel like bouncing off the walls? Today’s Inbox Jukebox Presents is gonna get you movin’—we’re bringing you an exclusive first look at Hunter Oliveri’s new video for his song “Hallelujah”, which is a punked-up & tripped-out visual explosion.
“’Hallelujah’ is tongue [in] cheek about gun violence and how shallow things can be in this modern world,” Oliveri says. The song is an upbeat stomper that belies its message—if you’re feeling numb and empty, turn this up and get out of your head for a few minutes.
“I wanted to show myself in a room, isolated, and a prisoner to myself and the material things we often are fixated on — hence me being tied up and somewhat trapped in my bed.”
The bass gives the track a heavy bounce, instantly demanding that you move your feet. And the matching visuals are dizzying as the camera jumps around the room, while Oliveri fills the space with throaty vocals. The guitar riffs build alongside the hypnotic sway of each shot, making the video feel claustrophobic and yet dynamic. The shades of red, the grungy static, the glimmering darkness of it all—there’s no way you can resist getting pulled into the thrills of “Hallelujah”.
