2018.5: our favorite albums + songs of the year so far

gvsb_2018.5

We're not quite halfway through 2018, but here's our annual recap of the albums + songs of the first half of the year anyway.

premiere: Primo – Mirage

PRIMO

We're psyched to debut this buzzing new track from Melbourne, Australia trio Primo, taken from the group's addictive debut album Amici, coming soon via Upset The Rhythm.

Hana Vu – Shallow

HANA VU EP FRONT
