Their songs chime and charm, sounding at times bountiful, at others brittle, always buoyant with attention to detail.
‘Amici’ is Primo’s debut album, following on from their split 7” last year and a cassette of early work entitled ‘Primo Cassetto’ from 2016 on Hidiotic. ‘Amici’ was recorded and mixed by friend Al Montfort through 2017.
The collected songs reference the 40-hour working week, the city, bureaucracy, walking, a mirage and a ghost. In form the songs are short and purposeful, “leaving footsteps in the snow” much like the protagonist of their wistful invocation to ‘Daphne’ in their previous release.
A sense of haste and motion is imbued through Primo’s songs, linking up with the album’s lyrical themes of acute observation, mindful conservancy and the dislocated meaning behind modern life.
These songs are alive and inquisitive, chasing down questions for answers long sped-away, amidst minimalist shuffle beats and ringing-out chords.
Outside of Primo!, Xanthe and Violetta have both lent their guitar skills to Terry and The Shifters respectively, whilst Suzanne works in film and Amy plays in Terry and Constant Mongrel.
