Taking its name from the Peruvian geoglyphs, NZCA LINES is the solo musical venture for Michael Lovett who has previously played guitar/synthesiser on Christine and the Queens’ recorded material – most recently on the ‘People, I’ve Been Sad’ single as well as on the debut LP – and has performed live as part of Metronomy.
Lovett has shared his first single in four years with the high-energy, ‘Pure Luxury’, hinting at a possible album release this year. Featuring tar-thick synth jams, the new single was inspired by Lovett’s experience of a Manhattan heatwave in February. The music comes as a response to the notions of luxury, status, and the insanity of pursuing material wealth in the face of environmental catastrophe. About the track, which is available now via Memphis Industries, Michael says: “It’s a sadistic joyride set in penthouse suites where the gold trim hides a rotting plywood facade, muscle cars are bought with credit cards and barbed wire fences separate luxury resorts from the slums beyond their walls. The fantasy of attainment in a world that has no future.”
