A film that follows Frogman as he explores the swampy lair of four precarious pilers just trying to survive the night.
“The song is about a number of things, at it’s core it’s about feeling crazy and wanting to exude as much energy as physically possible, jump around, go skydiving, just have a lot of fun,” Explains Jordan Heaney (vocals and guitar). Not only is this the core of the song, but obviously the main event of Frogpile’s first music video, as it captures on film craziness itself.
“It’s also about being aware of the moment you’re in and trying not to over-analyze in fear that the feeling may become lost forever,” elaborates Heaney, he further explains that the main riff from the song was originally an intro they had for their live shows, which they kept adding more progressions to, until it grew into a song that’s like a collage of mini experiments. The song is filled with backwards harmonies, electric drums, two keys playing over each other at the same time, and many more unique “experiments” that add to the psychedelic wild ride that is “Outrageous Contagious.”
The video stars Ethan Earl, also known as Frogman, a friendly and froggy face that has been spotted at many local events in his legendary frog hat. The film precariously follows him as he enters the world of chaos erupting on the scene as Frogpile plays to a crowd of wild, raving house destroyers. The energy of the song is reflected in the energy of the crowd as they mosh right through the walls, to the beat of the drums and Heaney’s chaos encouraging vocals. Frogpile is made up of Heaney on guitar and vocals, Brian Tancredi on guitar, Luke Tancredi on drums and Bartek Danel on bass.
These frogs will be piling together at the 333 on March 19th where you can catch them live for the their video release show!333, Frogpile
