East Yorkshire dream-punk quintet Priestgate have dropped their new single “White Shirt“.
The song is taken from their just announced EP ‘One Shade Darker‘, set to arrive on March 3 via Lucky Number & Mirror Music Group. Pre-order it here.
‘White Shirt’, is an anthemic homage to their small hometown of Driffield.
Formed as a battle cry against the restlessness and mundanity of rural life, Priestgate began as a reaction to the sparse local music scene around them, which in turn has allowed them to craft and develop their own unique sound without the added pressure of conformity.
Drawing comparisons to The Cure and The Maccabees, Priestgate have combined bright guitar-pop hooks with darker lyrical sensibilities, concocting their own angst-laden blend of the hypnotic and euphoric.
