For over four years now, Priority Orange have been staking
their place in the Adelaide music scene. Determined to stand apart from
other bands, they've successfully woven many under-represented genres
into a singular sound that is truly unique.|
With the two EPs released in 2009 and 2011 to appreciative reviews, that signature sound had already begun to evolve from alternative-grunge to include progressive-rock elements, and the third record will explore adding concepts from extreme metal into the mix. "If the first EP was Duplo, and the second one was Lego, the third will be like Meccano; sharp, pointy and metallic. And heavier."
The band's live shows are continuously remarked upon as being highly entertaining, due to their tongue-in-cheek approach to stage antics.

lyrics: "build exchange / and i feel estranged / too good to be true / words and acts / and abuse of facts / make me unlike you / all of this now / you're selling off / just where did all this shit come from / instead of if i had been smarter / or waited just a fraction longer / come to know what law and order / i'll blame you for everything / so demure / disappointing sure / how could i suspect / surface thin / and noone sees in / case it's imperfect / understated / your fragile heart / cracks appear after it's broken / karma lends what it affords to / you're the only one i know / who could redefine your boundaries / who could change yourself from the outside / who could turn gravel into almonds / and act like it happens everyday" // "attached to the bored / you're running on negativity / frustrating in simplicity / discrete and part of a bigger plan / half of which you'll never understand / it's alright by you / you see only the crest of the wave / and you shut yourself off / as though you have got something to save / and you're biased / and you don't know shit / tired of being ignored / mismarked in sensitivity / to burn out quick is your destiny / one in a fucking billion / you create the division / rectified / said anything / wanted to / start again / wrecked if i'd" // "sounds awash but some are never heard / rippling through the medium / after all / following everything / didn't want to feel this way / so jaded / why does everybody only tell you lies / sights bloom and some will never dim / sink into depths of blue and green / i walked out / slower than months can move / an escape can light your way / to nowhere / there ain't no such thing as safety in yellow / seems to me the moment / it's over / it could be just unlike any one i've known / didn't want to leave this place / so jaded / ain't the greatest question the one you never ask"

Music & lyrics by Larry Ash
With contributions to tracks 1-3 by Mino Kolega
lyrics: "inside the cube i was bestowed / i could have sworn those walls echoed / every damn fear that overflowed / all must get out / stifled and exiled / made it alone / dull foster child / left to my own / down desperate rivers running / obsequiously incoming / haze ceiling overhead thickening / poor creduloid" // "dense with ignorance / don't ask me what i'm doing tonight / time to change my mind / i act only out of spite / i forget exactly why i'm here / i can lie by double negative / i don't see how you can fill in the blank / i feel nothing / anyway to live / great i'll elevate / i'm digging you a deeper hole / thief sucking belief / i robbed everything you know / screen as if unseen / change direction of the line / lead then rejected / by what you thought of as divine" // "kinda like / the same square / it's not said / that look there / what you red / you're just as fucked up as before / now i'm leaving you wanting more / the thing is / in person / it gets worse / then it's gone / gonna hurt / you know who you remind me of and so do i" // "now that you've said all you have to say / ego only got in the way / ain't been as pissed off as i am now / tell me the why and the where and the how / dammed yourself and dammed by everyone / the harder you chase it the faster it runs / seriously don't take this personally / it wasn't as easy as it seemed to be / what the fuck is going through your mind / mumble synonyms i try to find / vision and everything interferes / am i gonna be static for years"

Pigmeat - Live at the Land Of Promise 2013 [04:18]
Filmed at the Squatters Arms Final Farewell, 20th July 2013, by Steve Eaton.
Pre-production Session #001 [01:29]
Filmed Thursday December 27th at Transmission Studios, SA. Rather than again leap straight into the recording stage of the next EP, we're instead tracking some simple demos for the newer songs. This way we can test drum sounds, arrangements, microphones, instruments, all that jazz, in a relaxed environment where there's more opportunities to manipulate things.
Left To My Own - Live at Fowlers Oct 2012 [04:42]
Filmed at the Adelaide Zombie Walk 2012 after-party, Saturday October 6th.
Cammy - Live [04:23]
Recorded live at the "Mk II" EP launch. Filmed by Steve Eaton and Jack Collins.
More - Live [03:26]
Live at Forresters & Squatters Arms 22.10.10. Also shot by Matthew R Davis.
