Country Priest – “Compromised”

Released this week, “Compromised” is a new single from Chicago act Country Priest’s forthcoming EP, Icarus. Wasting no time from the get-go with a full-bodied rock sound, not too distant from Foo Fighters’ more grunge-embracing tracks in aesthetic, “Compromised” builds to a glitchy double-tracked guitar solo in the latter half, finishing very strongly, alongside the hard-panned vocals. The lyrics speak to “an urgent and frenetic reflection on the compromised state of living in an image-saturated society.”

The track was self-recorded and self-produced in Country Priest’s practice space during the summer and fall of 2017 and mixed, with mastering by Kenny McWilliams at Archer Avenue Studio.
