The Primrose Path is Jonathan Breeʼs first solo album since a career with The Brunettes that saw the band release 4 albums and 4 EPs.
It is a dark and personal album that seems to examine the insecurities associated with feeling crap, irrelevant (Boxes) and over 30, often centered around the waning magic of a long term relationship (Bored At A Mall, Seven, Crippled Darling, The Primrose Path).
Like the Brunettes albums preceding it this one is written recorded and produced by Bree and is an orchestral pop album at its core.
Whereas The Brunettes would often hide adult themes behind pop culture references and double entendres, The Primrose Path is very lyrically direct and at times uncomfortably honest.
