I can’t think of a band who gets as close to the sound of 1970s punk music while also updating its anti-establishment message into the 21st century as well as Priests do.
These days, “punk” is more of an amorphous aesthetic than it is a movement, and when it is then it’s usually a perversion made by white youths with dreads to be violently angry without claiming responsibility. But PRIESTS get it. They get that punk is autocracy over anarchy, that it’s instructive rather than destructive, that it’s about collective empowerment instead of self-empowerment. They’ve always gotten this. And it sounds more distilled and pure on TSoK than ever. Luke Wilson
