PrYmary Colours - The Movement (single)

PrYmary Colours is a two-piece electronic act from Ireland with one mission - to spread positivity with its music. The group has several releases under its belt and notable media coverage, including features on RTE and the Irish Times, where they were labelled ‘New Artist Of The Week’ twice. The first release of the project, also aptly named The Movement, is a soulful and upbeat track with an infectious driving rhythm that harkens to the heydays of the 90s. Daz, the brains behind PrYmary Colours’ beats, infuses the traditional Irish Kerry Polka with modern elements of disco in a sonical effort to bring society closer together through the blending of past and present influences.
