MP3: Priests – The Seduction Of Kansas

Washington DC’s DIY punk top picks Priests will discharge another album called The Seduction of Kansas by means of their own Sister Polygon label on April fifth. It follows up their 2017 introduction album Nothing Feels Natural and is set to see them again investigating unordinary sonic landscapes while remaining consistent with their guitar center.

Priests have shared the title track from the album, and, as regular with Priests, ‘The Seduction of Kansas’ is pressed with agitating pictures and pointed lyricism. They start with a “ruthless angel choir,” before long proceeding onward to pot shots at the condition of their country, and after that creation further harsh perceptions about the idea of Capitalism. In any case, the theme returns to great pop tropes, as Katie Alice Greer rehashes “I’m the person who adores you, it’s actual,” and makes it without a doubt charming. How would they integrate every one of these components? With an irresistible disco groove, finished with a sludgy bass, cutting guitar asides, barometrical synths and an alarm like execution from Greer. This is all sublimely sewn together with the neatness of a high class originator.

The video for ‘The Seduction of Kansas’ is a similarly convincing and up-to-date issue, planned and made by Katie Alice Greer. It features each of the three individuals from Priests dressed to the nines and getting planning something naughty in an extravagant looking assembly hall. You can look at that beneath.
