Catchy post-punk Melbourne quartet return with their second album. Their songs chime and charm, sounding at times bountiful, at others brittle, always buoyant with attention to detail.

Amidst minimalist shuffle beats and ringing-out chords. The group’s debut album Amici (2018) was a triumph of the underplayed. 2020 sees Primo return with their second album of prudent delights entitled Sogni, from the Italian for ‘dreams’. Using the same musical lexicon and internal logic developed through their debut, ‘Sogni’ reflects on themes of decision-making, change, time, heartbreak, the practicalities of work and daily life. 

Primo's newest member since Amici was recorded is Amy Hill, who also plays in Terry and Constant Mongrel, on bass. Outside of Primo, Xanthe and Violetta both have lent their guitar skills to Terry and The Shifters respectively, whilst Suzanne works in film. Vocal duties were largely shared throughout the record, which has the same post punk sensibility and minimal approach as in previous recordings, but here imbued now with electronic flourishes and expanded instrumentation that sees Primo’s sound growing bolder.

"This is Sogni’s linchpin: the ability to seamlessly marry poetics and politics without an ounce of pretension. In the process, they conjure something galvanizing, class-conscious, and profound" - Pitchfork
