GENRE? Indie Rock

FOR FANS OF: Biffy Clyro, Feeder and False Friends

THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE TRACK: Nine Lives. Right from the get-go, this track pulls listeners in with it’s punchy drums, rhythmic guitar hooks and a beautiful blend of harmonies. Nine Lives was the first Primes track that I listened to which instantly left an impression on me. The uniqueness of the track separates them from just another rock band – they have this fresh, exciting presence surrounding themselves throughout the track and it’s refreshing to hear.

WHY ARE WE DIGGIN THEM? Energetic, infectious guitar hooks, strong powerful vocals and addictive drum beats, Primes provide the essential sound for the ultimate live setting. They made quite the name for themselves last year and they’re latest single, Moment proves they’re just going to keep getting bigger and bigger!
