PRIEST is electronic-based indie-pop vocalist Camille Priest, whose sound is a perfect amalgam of retro and modern influences. Think Passion Pit crossed with Belinda Carlisle at her commercial peak, then you know in what ballpark her new track Our Time Will Come has scored a home run.
The track feels like an anthem for the young and disenfranchised, as Priest sings “Hang on, lean on me! Our Time Will Come!” she chooses to love bomb the listener with a positive message, rather than pontificate on the state of things.
The arrangement chooses to wrap itself round the listener and lift them up, full of a light and driving energy. Anthems don’t need to be bombastic, they can be personal and magical, something Priest manages here with considerable aplomb.
Our Time Will Come is out now, streaming on Spotify and will feature on Priest’s upcoming EP Lost Lions, which will be released by Nordic Records and Painted Black. You can catch up with Priest on social media via Facebook, Twitter , Instagram and more.
