Portland four-piece Priory released their debut EP, ‘Cold Hands’, last year. Now they’re back with a self-titled follow-up, and what a stellar return they’ve made. Record highlights ‘Lady of Late’ and ‘Kings of Troy’ are brilliant examples of Priory’s songwriting craft. Bursting with inventive melodies and gripping hooks, these tracks deal with darker issues than their instrumentation would lead you to believe. Singer and bassist Brandon Johnson drives the songs with his earnest vocals, taking Priory onto a whole new level. This band has the tunes to make the big time, and will no doubt gather many fans on future tours. ‘Kings of Troy’ and ‘Lady of Late’ feature on the album ‘Priory’, available from Expunged Records.
