Teenage Priest – Cool To You
TEENAGE PRIEST is the solo music project of Taylor Van Ginkel. The Los Angeles based artist has a lot to say. Finding the way to express is always the hard part. But knowing Taylor’s body of work, you get the sense that every step is towards the right direction. With note by note accuracy and succinct tolerance for the microns of emotion that are hinged upon them, TEENAGE PRIEST is an unrelenting diatribe, of useful contrasts, seemingly unperturbed by the excesses of life and its beholden nature. This solo project is a new one, but Taylor has published prior with his former band RÓSA. The talented manipulator of musical instruments, stride in with dad hat vibes, but majestically sallies away with a grand sage of applauses and accolades. ‘Cool To you’ is a digitally decadent production, ready to be absorbed by the listener. It’s a ray of sunshine, at the edge of love.
