Priory "Weekend" (2014)
Portland duo Priory's new single "Weekend" and its accompanying just published video (above) perfectly capture the oft visited in pop music topics of teenage angst and yearning for the weekend. The song by the talented duo comprised of Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears has all the elements of a pop hit in itself. But with the engaging David Vincent Wolf (AKA White Ghandi) directed music video in a throwback era roller rink setting, starring Nick Krause (The Descendants, Boyhood) and Bailey Noble (known to many as Adilyn of True Blood) can only further the single's exposure and climb to mass popularity. The group formed five years ago and in 2011 released their self-titled debut album Priory on Portland's indie Expunged record label. Earlier this year Warner signed them. The single will be included on their new major label album slated for release later this year. Meantime Priory are preparing to go out on an eleven date US tour with Britpop quartet The Kooks, that kicks off at the Observatory in Santa Ana, CA on September 24th and stops in LA the following night at The Wiltern.
