PRIMO! Announce New LP 'Sogni', Stream "Best and Fairest"

Melbourne indie rock/post-punk trio Primo! have announced the release of their second full length album 'Sogni'.

The follow-up to 2018's debut 'Amici', will be out April 17th through Anti-Fade (AU) and Upset The Rhythm (UK), featuring their new single, "Best and Fairest". Pre-order your copy here.

Sogni (which translates to 'Dreams') reflects on themes of decision-making, change, time, heartbreak and the practicalities of work and daily life. Primo!'s music is a study of duality, weaving through these themes with an idiosyncratic delivery that is punctuated by post-punk sensibilities, upbeat jangle and unexpected electronic flourishes. Sogni sees the introduction of Amy Hill on bass, adding to the original trio of Suzanne Walker (drums), Violetta Del Conte-Race and Xanthe Waite (guitars). There’s a freshness here, a breaking of new territory that's a testament to the group’s collaborative work ethic and experience in their associated bands.

01. Things to Do
