Melbourne DIY crew who match punk attack to sunshine whimsy...

Melbourne's creative community are making international waves just now.

From visual arts through to club culture, the city seems to be tapping into some rare energy, a sense of DIY provocation that is resulting in some curious outlets.

New three-piece Primo! are part of this, a trio of musicians who cross borders with Terry and The Shifters.

Debut album 'Amici' is incoming, matching punk attack to sunshine whimsy in a manner redolent of the minimalist pop of the Flying Nun school.

With a rare flurry of European shows planned, Primo! are able to share the short, succinct new song 'Ticking Off A List'.

Opening with those caustic guitar chords Primo! rip into a Ramones-esque chug, before breaking down into almost pastoral scenes.

Off piste lyricism delivered with clear creativity, you can check out 'Ticking Off A List' below.

Catch Primo! at the following shows:

18 Copenhagen Bakken
25 Grenoble 102
26 Lyon Ground Zero
27 Manchester Soup Kitchen w/ Sauna Youth
29 London Islington
