Brooklyn singer-songwriter Joey Primero, under the moniker El Mar, is all set to release her debut full-length, Try To Forget, next Friday, August 11.
Self-defined as “mystic mermaid rock,” the album is a follow-up to her recently released The Road EP.
To give you a little taste of what Primero—along with a collective of musicians—has cooked up for us, we’ve got the exclusive premieres of “Dreamcatcher,” a track about lost love that shows off Primero’s vocal chops in a big way.
“‘Dreamcatcher’ was written on Cape Cod last summer,” said Primero of the track. “I wanted it to have a sense of urgency in order to capture that feeling of being frazzled or just unsettled in knowing things are coming to an end. And realizing that they were never meant to be.”
Frazzled or not, Primero has found her voice on this debut, and we’re already ready for more.
Be sure to catch El Mar at Rockwood Music Hall on August 26th—it’s a FREE show, so get your ass down there.
