For much of the Northern Hemisphere, summer arrived and passed unknowingly due to pandemic — resulting in a summer much different from the one’s that have past during years prior. East Yorkshire five-piece Priestgate reflects on their summer with their soaring and addictive new single ‘Summ(air)’.

Though the track is buoyant and vibrant, there’s a certain melancholic feeling that overcomes you as soon as you press play. The contrasting elements, including the captivating and dreamlike soundscapes mixed with the track’s punk-like vocals work together beautifully. The band said on ‘Summ(air)’, “We wanted to write a song that epitomises the feeling of nostalgia when the sun comes and goes in a Great British Summer.”

The new single marks their third-ever offering and we can’t wait to hear what they serve-up next. Listen to ‘Summ(air)’ by Priestgate below.
