London quartet Pris are Kat, Agatha, Mary and Sam who produce, in their own words, “hormonal gutter pop post-punk”.
This brand of gutter post-punk is a mish-mash of influences from sugar sweet 60’s girl group, raspy punk and post-punk with a hint of 90’s britpop nostalgia.
Debut single ‘The Better You Look The More You See’ is pretty typical of this zeal. It is catchy and infectious, their sharp-tongued lyrics, both angry and articulate, are delivered with swagger and snarl. B-side ‘Blue-Tack Baby’ isn’t too different, catchy bubblegum pop choruses eliciting memories of days when bedroom walls were layered with posters and cuttings.
They have already received praise from the likes of Eddie Argos (Art Brut) and Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers). While still in their infancy it is impossible not to be seduced by their catchy and infectious perfect pop-punk. Most importantly they sound like they are having fun a commodity sadly missing from many bands nowadays.
Pris’ debut single ‘The Better You Look The More You See’ is out now!
