Nuovo Testamento
Purest Form

The Los Angeles & Bologna-based trio, Nuovo Testamento, is lighting up the dance floor with their uniquely dark italo disco-flavored pop hits. Following the release of the coldwave cult favorite Exposure EP in 2019 on Avant! Records, their acclaimed full length, New Earth, exploded onto the scene with its graceful touch of 1980s-influenced club elements, contagious rhythms and the powerful punch of synthpop. The release was widely considered across genres to be one of 2021’s best underground albums of the year. Now, with their highly anticipated second LP, Love Lines, Nuovo Testamento continues to explore the light, the dark and the exultant personal power in what will undoubtedly become an instant dance classic.

Love Lines is an album about proof of life and the joy of survival. Vibrant with Italo disco and Hi-NRG celebration, and born amidst years of pandemic uncertainty and restriction, the record invokes a sense of motion in an otherwise stagnant time and place. Inside the eight new tracks, rich synthesizers and driving percussion testify to the need for movement, connection and autonomy.

Produced by sound engineer Maurizio Baggio (Boy Harsher, The Soft Moon and many more) with vocal recording by Riki, Love Lines is reminiscent of the work of Shep Pettibone, Chris Barbosa and serves as a reminder of the power of pop music.

Love Lines is out March 20 on Discoteca Italia. It is available on vinyl limited to 2000, including classic Black, Baby Blue/Baby Pink (250) and Red/White (250).
