Q&A: The Primary
The Primary, and today we have Jules (vocals/guitars) and Gemma (bass guitar).
Define your genre in five words or less:
Dreamy noise pop.
What do you love about making music?
The ability to put yourself into the music, and putting your own stamp onto something creatively. Also, getting carried away at times, and forgetting about all the other stuff that comes with living.
If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it be and why?
We don’t reveal our extensive hit list to strangers. Besides, could be you and that’d be extremely awkward.
What can a punter expect from your live show?
Songs from one of the least dysfunctional bands witnessed in recent times. And great shoes. Always great shoes.
What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
We’re giving out some nifty singles for free at our upcoming single launch, which we’re very excited about! Who knows, Will (drums/percussion) and Matt (keys/vocals) may even lay a heavily-lipsticked kiss upon your copy. If you’re lucky.
So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you... what do they say?
I like their shoes. Music’s not bad too. Shame the bassist isn’t single.
How long have you been gigging and writing?
We’ve all had different experiences playing music (other bands and projects plus geeky school bands), but if you combine each member’s music experience it’d add up roughly to the age of an unruly teenager… much like ourselves.
When are you doing your thing next?
As mentioned before, we’re doing our single launch on July 5at The Evelyn Hotel. Entry is $2, copies of our single are for free and we’ll be joined by friends Staffan’s Songs, Howard, The Kilniks and Esc. So basically, one big party.
