Taking its name from the Peruvian geoglyphs, NZCA Lines is the crisp synth pop project of Michael Lovett. Drawing inspiration from music as diverse as Stravinsky and Ciara. 2013 saw the first full-length eponymous album, which featured production work by labelmate Charlie Alex March and mixing by Ash Workman.
A busy few years followed with Lovett playing guitar and synths on Christine and the Queens‘ debut and recording and playing live with Metronomy, he also completed a degree in illustration while working on new NZCA Lines music. NZCA Lines latest, the ambitious “Infinite Summer” was inspired by science fiction writers such as Arthur C. Clarke and Philip K. Dick as well as Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555 and arrived in early 2016. Featuring Charlotte Hatherley and Hot Chip’s Sarah Jones the album is perfect distopian mix sci-fi and synthesizers. Subsequent touring as a duo, – Lovett and Jones – 2016 has seen them set their sights firmly beyond the stratosphere.
