Indie Soul Pop (Detroit)

When your band hails from Detroit, expectation is front-loaded without a blink. “Your hometown gave us Motown, the Stooges, Bob Seger, Eminem and the automobile,” the world says. “What have you got?” In Prussia’s case, the Detroit quintet offers a musical palette as diverse as the aforementioned intimidating exports, from a soulful Pop experimentalism that includes Beatlesque melodicism, Afro-Pop riffs, waltz timings, theatrical Pop operatics and irrepressible Indie Rock intensity. Does Prussia live up to their Motor City heritage? You bet your Made in Detroit bumper sticker, they do.
