TV Priest - Press Gang

TV PRIEST are an English rock band formed in London in 2019. The band consists of Charlie Drinkwater (vocals), Nic Bueth (bass and keyboard), Alex Sprogis (guitar), Ed Kelland (drums).

They signed to Sub Pop after only having played one gig in an industrial freezer in November 2019, with other concerts cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their debut album, "Uppers", was released on 5 February 2021 by Sub Pop.

Life isn’t quite like that though, and the debut album from London four-piece TV PRIEST instead embraces the beautiful and terrifying unknowns that exist personally, politically, and culturally.

Posing as many questions as it answers, "Uppers" is a thunderous opening statement that continues the UK’s recent resurgence of grubby, furious post-punk music. It says something very different though – something completely its own.

The first impression of "Uppers" got me thinking of the Swedish V**AGRA BOYS, even if they make it thier own creation, but it may be the best parable if you need somekind of lead.

Today's tune "Press Gang" taken from their album "Uppers", Release February 5 via Sub Pop Records. The video was directed by Joe Wheatley. Enjoy!
