Primo! will release their second full length album, Sogni, on April 17. Sogni is the follow up to 2018’s Amici. Drawing from the same collective musical lexicon as seen with Amici, Sogni (which translates from the Italian as '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). Xanthe and Amy both play in Melbourne class act Terry too! 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. Spanning just under 30 minutes, Sogni’s twelve songs were conceived collectively in the rehearsal room and perfected in a live setting, before being recorded to an 8-track with Al Montfort (Terry, Total Control, UV Race) across a number of home studios in Melbourne.
