We’ve been waiting over three years for Priests to put out their debut full-length, and now the time is almost upon us. We’ve already heard two singles from the Washington, DC punks’ forthcoming Nothing Feels Natural, “JJ” and “Pink White House,” and now they’ve shared the album’s surprisingly pretty and melodic title track.
“This song was written when we weren’t sure the record we were trying to make would ever be completed or actually come out, and that is actually what it’s about,” says singer Katie Alice Greer in a press release. “I was really depressed and frustrated. I worked in a restaurant and hated it and thought I would work there forever (because that’s how you think when you’re depressed). This band has never been a hobby or something we do when there’s nothing better to do, so in times when it feels like things aren’t working, my entire life feels like it’s not working. This song came out of that feeling.”
Nothing Feels Natural is out 1/27 on Sister Polygon.
