1. Pure Luxury
Details Pure Luxury
NZCA LINES, the Pitchfork, Guardian, BBC 6 Music and NPR-tipped project of producer and multi-instrumentalist, Michael Lovett, is today sharing his first single in four years with the high-energy, “Pure Luxury” out via Memphis Industries.
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, 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.”
