Priests – The Seduction of Kansas

Wow, this is not the Priests we remember from such post-punk bangers as “Doctor” and “And Breeding” from their epic 2014 EP Bodies and Control and Money and Power. Great bands are capable of startling evolution, and Priests, now a trio with the departure of Taylor Mulitz to play full time in Flasher, enlisted high profile producer John Congleton to help craft their second full length album The Seduction of Kansas with a new sound. Its title track is the debut single, a sexy dance punk number that still retains singer Katie Alice Greer’s acerbic wit in the lyrics. She also directed this music video with cinematographer Drew Hagelin, well-known on this site for helming vids from Pearie Sol and Bat Fangs. “The Seduction of Kansas” is truly gorgeous and quintessentially Lynch-ian with strange choreography and creepy hotel location, not to mention drummer Daniele Daniele’s resemblance to Sherilyn Fenn’s iconic character Audrey Horne. Keep your eyes peeled to grab tickets for Priests’s big hometown show at the 9:30 Club on Saturday June 15th.
