Samurai, Orlando-based synth-pop duo Priest, formerly known as X priest X and comprised of vocalist Madeline Priest and producer Dave Kazyk have today released their long-awaited self-titled debut album via Swedish label Emotion (oOoOO, Karl x Johan, etc).
The album includes the duo's previously released singles, "The Game," "Broken," "Strong Hearts" and "Staring At The Walls", which so far this year has seen the pair solidifying their role as a top act-to-watch in 2015. Gliding subtly between 80's lo-fi pop and sharply syncopated rhythms, Priest create a distinct brand of modern pop that is dark, poignant, and simply well-crafted.
With garnered widespread praise from the likes of Dazed & Confused, Stereogum, DUMMY, Noisey (Vice), NYLON, Pigeons and Planes, The Line of Best Fit and The 405, just to name a few, Priest are not one to sleep on. Get involved and grab a copy of their debut album which is available now on iTunes. Stream the album's singles below.
