Bio

"Keep an eye on the pairing as they move into a national force-to-watch in the months to come - it's almost inevitable at this point" - Pilerats

"Woah this is HOT pop!" - Claire Mooney - triple j Unearthed

Perth Duo PRISCILLA have only been out and releasing music into the world since 2018, but have already been referred to as “the Electro-Pop sound of the future” (Max Lewis - Purple Sneakers). Their sole purpose is to move you with lyrics, hit you with harmony and make waves with endless breakneck bops. Hayden from Pilerats will tell you “Priscilla's swirling melodies have won us over time and time again” and not only is it because this unlikely pair are the best of friends- but in reality Priscilla’s just the lost brother Luke never knew he had.

PRISCILLA’s powerful live set has landed them 2018/19 supports with bands like The Presets, San Cisco, Haiku Hands, EDEN, ALPINE, Wafia, Woodes, Matthew Young and more. Within just over a year of performing live, the duo have gotten audiences grooving main stages at Fairbridge Festival, RTRFM’s Fremantle Winter Music Festival, WAMFest and even killer events like the WA Art Gallery’s annual Art Ball.

"After a pretty full on year PRISCILLA now focus on releasing music to empower and aide those to forget life’s stresses and enjoy doing all things you love. The release is also a positive outlook on when life tries to get you down, dance away your troubles and start “feeling higher”.

PRISCILLA plan to continue dropping their “addictive synth-pop sound comparable to names like Kimbra and Janelle Monae with thick, synthy productions and [the] gliding vocals” - (Pilerats)

I like the lyrical and sonic shifts between introspective storytelling and losing your inhibitions. It's dancing one minute, and then the lights have come on in the club the next.

Oof that 1 minute unexpected left turn! Turning from a snappingly meaty brooder into a glistening pop paradise.

I'm listening along enthralled by Priscilla's bold ideas. It starts off all slinky-like before mechanising into this towering disco-pop battle droid.
