Led by Perth based bandleader and composer Brendan Scott Grey, Premiss’ self-titled debut EP is a strikingly unconventional artistic venture where the union of music needing to be voiced and the stories to make sense of it all come together.
Using an impressive eight piece band as its medium, compositions were approached with the desire to utilise the raw and imperfect sounds of a live band within the genre of Australian hip-hop. All tracks were musically written in their entirety and then presented to a selection of Perth’s finest MC's to say whatever they wanted to say. There was no editing, instruction, boundaries or censorship. The story that came to the MC's first was the one recorded; the one allowed to live in that moment.
