TV Priest release new single ‘Limehouse Cut‘, from their second album My Other People which is set for release on 17 June via Sub Pop. The track is a very different soundscape from the London based 4-piece. The mood is more sombre and measured. Thoughtful and metronomic in equal measure, the plucking guitar chords at the forefront of the sonics with a mesmeric rhythm which is almost hypnotic in its delivery. The vocal is gentler than the bombastic delivery which dominated on debut album Uppers, and demonstrates the versatility of TV Priest. The quiet chord sequence at the end drifts away, like the receding tide.

Vocalist Charlie Drinkwater says of ‘Limehouse Cut‘:

“The song is about a feeling dislocated and displaced in an urban space you once felt you knew and ‘understood’, however it’s also a coming to terms with an idea that you never really ‘own‘ somewhere as infinitely regenerative as a city. It’s a bit of a psycho-geographical study, a little bit of pathos at my own mortality and smallness in the great tide of history. We loved the idea of something quite abstract, something that references landscape, feels mesmeric, melancholic, a little sinister but also quite beautiful.”

TV Priest’s second album My Other People is out on 17 June via Sub Pop. It was produced by band member/multi-instrumentalist Nic Bueth at Studio East in London. LPs purchased directly through Sub Pop  and other selected independent retailers in North America will receive the Opaque Pink w/white smoke vinyl version (while supplies last). Meanwhile, LP preorders in the UK and Europe through select independent retailers will receive the album on clear vinyl.
