“Trip Advisor” is the instantly enamouring latest single from Newcastle-based Alt Indie experimentalists Primary Colours. Whatever the key to creating a hit instead of just a track, it’s contained in the colourful mind-melting textures of Trip Advisor.
If you could imagine what it would sound like if Velvet Revolver, Desert Mountain Tribe, and the Legendary Pink Dots collaborated on a record, you’ll be able to get an idea of the kind of cosmic riff-driven alchemy which Primary Colours offer.
Call me jaded, but there aren’t many bands who can leave me feeling as adrenalized as I felt listening to Trip Advisor for the 1st time (and the 5th). That probably has a lot to do with the volatile kaleidoscopic raucous energy contained in the track. After hearing it on record, I’m making it my mission to hear it live. I can only imagine how blisteringly transcendent a live set from Primary Colours would be.
You can check out Trip Advisor along with the rest of their mesmeric back catalogue via Spotify.
