Madeline Priest (one half of X priest X) spent her formative years studying ballet & grew to find a passion for musical theater creating the foundation for her talent as a standout vocalist. Pairing with producer (& other half of the project) Dave Kazyk in early 2013, demos “Samurai” + “Dark Sun” were penned & subsequently released in the latter half of 2013. With little expectations, the songs took a life of their own & found themselves scooped up by tastemakers around the globe.
Gliding subtly between 80s lo-fi synth pop & sharply syncopated rhythms, X priest X create a distinct brand of modern pop that is just as intriguing as it is undeniable. A definite project to watch in 2014. Get involved.
