July 19, 2019

D.C. punks Priests are the latest band to step into NPR's office to record a Tiny Desk session. The band, fronted by Katie Greer, performed three songs from their 2019 album The Seduction Of Kansas for the cameras. They played stripped-back versions of “Jesus’ Son,” “The Seduction of Kansas,” and “I’m Clean” with additional piano from Mary Voutsas. Check out their performance above.

Back in April, shortly before the release of The Seduction Of Kansas, Priests shared a video for album track "Jesus's Son." The accompanying video, directed by David Ashton and Katie Alice Greer, is a near shot-for-shot reimagining of Nine Inch Nails' "March Of The Pigs" video.
