Nothing Feels Natural is the first full-length by Washington, D.C.’s Priests.
Recorded in the fall of 2016, the record is the culmination of two years’ writing, touring, tweaking, and
refining. Throughout that time the band has carved out an existence on its own terms, performing mostly
all-ages shows booked via a network of like-minded artists both within and outside punk communities.
The album represents a major step forward for Priests. It’s the band’s most stylistically diverse set of songs
to date, expanding on their lo-fi post-punk bona-fides with ideas drawn from pop, R&B, and industrial
noise. Thematically, Nothing can be understood as a series of vignettes—nine stories that crystallize into a
bigger picture about the economics of human relationships, the invisibility of feminized labor, and the dual
purpose of art for both the group and the individual.
