Influenced by the ’80s synths and the current acts Madeline follows (Phantogram, Metric, Chvrches, Purity Ring and Washed Out) Priest (formerly X priest X) may suggest a band with religious connotations, however, “priest” is actually lead singer Madeline's last name, and their music doesn’t so much touch on hallowed subjects as post-apocalyptic worlds which are simultaneously rooted in reality. To complement this lyrical bent the Florida duo—that’s Madeline and David Kazyk—make dreamy electro pop, backed by pulsing synths and topped off with Madeline's sugar-dusted vocals.
Their first EP was released on Apr 15, 2014, made waves in the underground pop world for the last couple of years with the dreamy, ’80s-inspired anthems receiving praises like "The production is lush, the vocals ethereal and the instrumentation simple yet layered" and "It's like an investigation into all the synth can do, with X priest X letting it be the beacon that guides the way."
Now, with the release of their self-titled debut LP (due May 5) boasting shimmery, layered electro-bops like “Broken” and “Strong Hearts,” the album seems destined to expand their audience considerably.
