Paper Magazine called Brad Walsh's Primary EP "indie-electro gold" and "a smorgasbord of brooding indie dance music, with beatific synths and pummeling bass." PopCrush called it "vibrant, pulsating" and "a collection of thumping, shape-shifting, left-of-center electronic productions that seeks to shake up the staleness of pop." On November 6, the EP peaked at #1 on the iTunes New Releases Pop chart.

Lyrics: “Battle Cry”
Written & produced by Brad Walsh
Guitar: Thomas Becker

Off the road of this pilgrimage
On the edge of the unknown
Toward the end of a tournament
That I never entered in

And the people watch
Confrontations as
Armaments are borne
Hunting our own flesh
And we entertain
Go against our grain
For the rich and die
Holding our heads high

Call out your battle cry

From up on high
Come into sight
Call out a cry
Into the night

Lyrics: “Destroyer”
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

I am destroyer

I fume electric and irradiate
No earthly army of men can slow my rate
I will destroy all that you create

Ride the peaks and valleys like a roller coaster
Body explosion lets you know that it's over

Don't try to fight my destruction
It's evidence of affection I care to take you apart
I fill my emptiness here with everything you have there
It's my version of a heart
I will destroy all that you create

I am destroyer

Lyrics: “Live in Me (feat. Emm Gryner)”
Written by Brad Walsh & Emm Gryner
Produced by Brad Walsh

My mouth is like an open door
My belly is a master floor
If you're looking I'll give you a tour
I wouldn't mind if you would
Live in me

My eyes are windows to the soul
And my hands will guard you from the world
Warm your body by my inner core
I wouldn't mind if you would
Live in me

And I'll give you the key
Give you everything you need
Can you turn up the heat
Turn turn turn up the heat
Lay you down in my suite
I'm a hot commodity, why don't you
Live in me

If you just live in me
I will be
I'll be forever home

Lyrics: “Easy (feat. Juliana Hatfield)”
Written by Juliana Hatfield & Brad Walsh
Produced by Brad Walsh

I can't shake my problems away
It's like a hammer to my brain
It's not easy for me to be me
It's not easy for me to be me

This passion is poison
It only brings you shame
Dropped and broken
Never see this place again

It's not easy for me to be me

Lyrics: “Bruise”
Written & produced by Brad Walsh

Coming out with the same song one more time
Riding off in the backseat of a knockoff of an expensive toy
A tip of a bottle bought with someone else's dime
Dampen the feeling of this uncomfortable bruise that's pulsing inside

And though it's familiar
And we both know how it ends
I held out for hours, willing
I knew I would give in

Tell myself just a little
And it won't be bad
Must pretend it's a decision
You're the best I've ever had
Tell myself just a little
It won't be bad

Tell myself it's just one time and
Then I won't be back
Must pretend it's my decision
Not to end up on my back
Tell myself it's just a moment
It won't be bad

Selling out where you come from one more time
Anything for a quick buck, regardless of what your mother does
Everything exists forever on DVD
Everything will always be the way you saw on TV

And though it's familiar
And we both know how it ends
I held out for hours, willing
I knew I would give in
I knew I would give in
I knew I would give in

Lyrics: “Eye in the Night (feat. Luscious Jackson)”
Written by Brad Walsh & Jill Cunniff
Produced by Brad Walsh

All it takes is someone to erase
Any trace of your face from the lover's space
Only then can a new one win
And return to my lover's den
It's way back at the end of a dream
In the place where the plans and the lovers lay
Only there can the hunt begin
For my unsuspecting prey

And like an eye (oh-oh-oh)
With sight inside
I see the light from up
Enlightened mind (oh-oh-oh)
I can see inside
Just like an eye in the night

Crawling out of the burning light
Cause I'm sick of the fact that we only fight
Gonna go where the others go
Find someone that I don't know
Mystery makes it all unwind
There's a beat underneath that I need to find
If you're the one that will clear my soul
Let the mystery unfold
