Hailing from the sleepy rural town of Driffield in East Yorkshire, Priestgate are euphoric and full of angst in equal measure. After a stellar year of experimentation, the band have emerged out of 2020 infusing serene pop hooks with dark sensibilities drawing comparisons to the likes of The Maccabees, DIIV and The Cure.
Through the release of singles ‘NOW’ and ‘Summ(air)’ the band have received support from new music informers So Young, DJ’s Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Steve Lamacq (6Music), Shell Zenner (Amazing Radio) and Spotify Editorial (‘Hot New Bands’, ‘Alt. Rocked’, ‘ok whatevs’).
“An enchanting introduction to a group that will seemingly pour in everything with unified compassion.”
