Prima Prima

Prima is the rock project of singer-songwriter Rose Blanshei, who tells cinematic, emotionally exact stories in a bold, vital style. Blanshei’s voice sears with a ferocity and exactitude which recalls a young PJ Harvey or Patti Smith, while her melodies can insinuate the smokiness of torch singers past, even chanson. Helped by driving rhythms and angular guitar voicings, these songs build and churn towards terrifying heights, or hang back with a cold stare.
