Primitive London pays a tribute to the marvels of British "library music" and its forgotten treasures from the XXth century. This Anglo-French quartet winks at these psychedelic pieces, shady atmospheric ambiances and peplum-worthy melodies which were used as radio interludes, TV program trailers and other sonic backdrops.
Composed and recorded in secret for images that didn't yet exist, the multi-faceted richness of library music has nonetheless played a decisive role in the collective subconscious of today's music.
Primitive London took its turn in inventing a "soundtrack without a film" and composed a repertoire of original music, digging new tunnels between jazz, electronic, pop, free and art music. Mixing miniature pieces flavoured with a certain sixties oddness and long tracks with cinematic beats the quartet unreels the scenes of its own picture, thus sharing its love for this parallel, free and futuristic industry and its musical minds.
