Nothing Feels Natural is the first full-length by Washington, D.C.â€™s Priests.
Recorded in the fall of 2016, the record is the culmination of two yearsâ€™ 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. Itâ€™s the bandâ€™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 vignettesâ€”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.
