Set for release on 25th March on Luck Number, Yorkshire’s Priestgate have announced their debut EP ‘Eyes Closed For The Winter’, alongside sharing the EP’s title track.
Speaking on the new single, vocalist Rob Schofield explains, “‘Eyes Closed For The Winter’ is about how time affects us as people & how often we avoid things we’re scared to deal with. Sometimes the best medicine for this is to just close your eyes and accept that things can get a little hard at times.”
