There’s a lot of reasons to love d-i-y punk pop duo Pris, but in particular for their two fingers up at the world f*ck you attitude. Some of their recent targets on Facebook have included Jessie J, Ellie Goulding and Jessie Ware: “Jessie Ware on Later looked like my old boss doing karaoke at a works do,” was one that made us giggle recently. They’re the sort of band that we reckon it would be great to hang out with and go drinking with, except for the fact that we imagine they’d drink us under the table and then leave us tied to a lamp post, possibly naked, for punishment for what we’re pretty sure in their eyes would be some of the ‘bland’ music that we feature on Breaking More Waves.
The good news is that Pris have returned with a new song and accompanying video. Do You Wanna Be In My Bland is all lo-fi gangsta in a d-i-y style, with toy guns, lipstick, tit tape, bikes, cars (an old VW golf) and cigarettes. It reminds us a little of the likes of Shampoo, Fuzzbox, Kenickie, and Bis. It’s kind of shouty but still has plenty of pop sensibility about it.
Right we’re off to listen to a bit of Mumford & Sons and Michael Kiwanuka, we’re sure Pris would appreciate that.
