Today LA PRIEST shares a video for his forthcoming single, Lady’s In Trouble With The Law (25th September). The video was again directed by long-time collaborator Isaac Eastgate and shows Sam Dust on a speeding boat, chasing the sun as it sinks toward the horizon..

* = with Glass Animals


Across its ten audaciously imaginative tracks, Inji reasserts Dust as a truly idiosyncratic voice in British music, applying the same frantically eclectic, mischievous and wilfully absurd spirit of his previous band, the beloved Late of the Pier, to ever more nuanced and affecting songwriting and composition.

From the obscene space-age stadium rock guitar solo of ‘Oino’, the maddeningly catchy digi-dub single that Dust leaked sample-by-sample on a suitably enigmatic website at the turn of the year (watch the video HERE), to ‘Learning To Love’ (watch the video HERE), the record's gargantuan, eight minute long prog-house centrepiece and ‘Occasion’ (watch the video HERE), a melting martian Prince come-on, Inji confounds and delights in equal measure and at every turn.

Inji is available on CD (WIGCD344), LP with download code (WIGLP344), Deluxe LP with download code (WIGLP344x) & Digital (WIG344D). Buy the album through Dom Mart HERE and through iTunes HERE.
