As a music fan, there are few things better than getting an unknown ridic catchy song stuck in your head, discovering who it’s from and finding out there’s cool people behind it. Thus is the case for me with Portland based Priory’s Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears. As soon as I heard their ‘Weekend’ (and yes, it’s the weekend now) EP title track, I needed to know more. Out on the road through the fall, they’ve shared some dates with The Kooks and some upcoming with White Arrows, punctuated by their appearance at Vegas’ “Life Is Beautiful” fest I attended. Capping off a great year, they’re signed to Warner Bros, where Priory’s fits in with a standout 2014 of music releases, and have come quite a long way.

Catching up with the pair at a tour stop, we discussed how they met (a funny story involving a potentially condemned house), their struggles to survive (yes, even Kyle’s plasma bank donations to pay for groceries), “Portlandia” accuracy and random WTF moments with Andre 3000 and Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell.
