NZCA LINES UNVEILS VIDEO FOR “TWO HEARTS”
NEW ALBUM INFINITE SUMMER RELEASED 22ND JANUARY 2016; ON TOUR IN FEBRUARY
NZCA LINES unveil their new video for â€œTwo Hearts.â€ The London-based band â€“ a project led by Michael Lovett, with Charlotte Hatherley (Bat For Lashes, Ash) and Sarah Jones (Hot Chip) â€“ will release their sophomore album Infinite Summer on 22nd January via Memphis Industries.
“I feel the video for Two Hearts mirrors the song’s alternating intimacy and bombast,” says Michael of the Leo Stamps-directed film. “Lyrically the song is about isolation and the distance in a relationship, and here Sarah and I sing our parts separately, each alone in a void lit by blinding strobes and icy pillars of light.”
“Two Hearts” – currently on the BBC 6 Music A-List – is the second track to surface from forthcoming sophomore album Infinite Summer and is, according to Lovett, “about the push and pull of a relationship, a pendulum swinging back and forth between joy and hurt, where the ultimate resolution always takes place in the middle of the night, under glaring lights, to a soundtrack of extremely loud music.”

Infinite Summer combines lush, dance-ready pop with R&B beats to create a heady, rhythmic, and epic journey. Recorded over the last two years with Charlie Alex March (Veronica Falls) as studio co-conspirator, and mixed by David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals), itâ€™s an emotional and dark, intimate and refined LP that refracts Lovettâ€™s personal life through the guise of a concept album.
Influenced by the likes of science fiction writers Arthur C. Clarke, Brian Aldiss, J.G. Ballard, Clifford Simak and Philip K. Dick, Lovett explains further: â€œThe album is based around the idea of a far-future Earth, where the sun has expanded to the size of a red giant and our extinction is imminent. Half of the world is covered by a city [Cairo-Athens] that clings to the past and embraces its destruction, whilst the other half is trying to rebuild, create and make something new. Yet, itâ€™s good on both sides because it’s warm everywhere and people just party most of the time.â€
“Persephone Dreams” and “Two Hearts” are available to download now at www.nzca-lines.com alongside Infinite Summer pre-order on limited edition coloured vinyl LP, CD and download.
