Jonah Primo breaks the boundaries of genre on his new single Round My Neck

There’s something undeniably hypnotic about the music of Jonah Primo. The Sydney-based multi-instrumentalist oozes out a brand of music that feels simultaneously sultry and energetic; it’s dynamic, but effortlessly so.

With the release of his debut single, he has immediately established himself as one of the Aussie music scene’s most unique and exciting emerging acts. If you’re not already familiar with this name, it’s definitely time you changed that.

On his new single Round My Neck, Sydney-based multi-instrumentalist Jonah Primo presents a genre-bending slice of sonic brilliance.

Throughout the new track, Jonah Primo glides through a hallucinatory blend of indie-rock, psych, and soul to deliver a sound uniquely his own. With rich instrumentation and spirited vocal hooks, Round My Neck is the kind of track that’ll seep deep into your bones and force you to move.

Across its four-minute run-time, the song pulls in myriad sonic directions—it never sits in one place for too long. One moment you’ll be floating through woozy guitars, and the next you’ll be shaking to groove-laden bass lines. By the time the track reaches its conclusion, you’ll have been roped in completely by Jonah Primo’s brilliantly versatile sounds.

These still may be early days for this Sydney musician, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes.
