Watch the video for new LA Priest track, "Beginning"

With just over a month until the release of new album GENE, Sam Eastgate AKA LA Priest has shared new single, “Beginning”. Marking a dazzling opening to GENE, “Beginning” hits with an unescapable melody and the first introduction to GENE, the custom built drum machine on which the album was made. As LA Priest says: “…and in the beginning there were drums and LA Priest said, ‘Let there be fire.’”

“Beginning” is accompanied by a video directed by Joseph Bird, in which we see LA Priest in a total nomadic and exploratory state - almost shamanic - rambling across the vast expanses of his home of North Wales with a 7ft Flying-V guitar.

LA Priest also recently shared the GENE Machine Emulator - a virtual version of the GENE, his custom created drum machine. The emulator enables users to recreate their own version of both “Beginning” and “What Moves?”. Access The GENE Machine HERE





This May, LA Priest will perform “Live From The Shed” via live stream, playing new music and the hits. Following the album’s release, LA Priest will be taking GENE out on the road for the first time in the Autumn of 2020.

LA Priest GENE

Arriving four years after the iconoclast variously known as Sam Dust, LA PRIEST and L.A. Priest thrilled the world with the cosmic pop of his debut album Inji, GENE is named after a brand new modular drum machine Sam dreamt up and built alone.
