New signing! NZCA Lines announce new album 'Infinite Summer' / share first single 'Persephone Dreams'

We're delighted to announce that NZCA LINES return with new album 'Infinite Summer', set to be released via Memphis Industries on 22nd January 2016.

The follow up to 2012’s well-received self-titled album, 'Infinite Summer' sees main man Michael Lovett joined by Charlotte Hatherley (Bat For Lashes, Ash) and Sarah Jones (Hot Chip), to create a record that marries sci-fi futurism to personal intimacies.

The first cut from the album is the expansive ‘Persephone Dreams’, a propulsive slice of epic electro-pop that climaxes with dueling steel drums (by Fimber Bravo) and shredding guitar, premiering now on Stereogum.
