Priests are the latest act to stop by NPR for a Tiny Desk Concert, uploaded on Friday (July 19). 

The D.C.-based post-punk band -- comprised of Katie Alice Greer, Daniele Yandel, G.L. Jaguar, and Alexandra Tyson -- played three songs from The Seduction of Kansas, their record released earlier this year: "Jesus' Son," "The Seduction of Kansas," and "I'm Clean."

The songs, usually upbeat and filled with fuzzy vocal effects and clashing drums, were stripped down for the session. They even brought an extra member for the set, Mary Voutsas, to accompany them on the upright piano.

For the last song, "I'm Clean," Greer and Yandel switched instruments -- with Greer on drums and Yandel on lead vocals -- making for a wonderful dynamic. 

Watch the full session below.
