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.

If pressed to categorize this thing, we'd file the record under vaguely psychedelic lite-funk/dream-pop, or the dreaded (not by us, but you know) "chillwave/hypnogogic pop" tag...
