Orlando duo Priest has made the most of the first few months of 2015. In February, they dumped their Xs – in the past their name was stylized, “X priest X” – and teased their upcoming, self-titled debut album (out 5/5) with the hazy bliss pop gem, “The Game.” The song really propelled the duo to a whole new audience, and I’m glad an Orlando act is seeing well-deserved success.
Last week, we got another preview with “Broken.” Here, vocalist Madeline Priest grieves over the hungover disco beats of David Kazyk. Priest’s glowing voice strolls steadily through the verses, adding to the eery tone that bursts into chorus. The instrumentals fluctuate between each chorus and verse, and it’s this progression that makes “Broken” an atmosphere worth driving through. Enjoy.
