Prussia - “Mediator” MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

[15 August 2011]

By PopMatters Staff

Tomorrow Detroit’s Prussia are kicking off the release of a series of 10-inch singles with “Mediator”. This three-part series is titled “Poor English” and will roll out over the next three months while the band heads out on tour with El Ten Eleven. “Poor English” is an ambitious undertaking from a group known for tackling serious subjects underneath glossy pop melodies; in this go-around they sing tales of “suicide, misogyny, sexual vacancy, and the crippling ennui of illusory love”. The band describes it best as “T.S. Eliot’s drunken scribbling on a bathroom wall”.
