NUOVO TESTAMENTO - Announces Release Of Debut Full-Length, First Single Unveiled

Los Angeles (USA) and Bologna (Italy) based coldwave/synthpop trio Nuovo Testamento will release the debut album entitled New Earth via Avant! Records on 30 June. The band has now revealed the first single "Michelle Michelle". Nuovo Testamento is the trio featuring members of Horror Vacui, Sheer Mag, Tørsö, Terremoto and Crimson Scarlet. With the addition of Chelsey Crowley on vocals, synthesists Andrea Mantione and Giacomo Zatti found that their initial coldwave tracks, originally written for the male voice, took on an undeniable synthpop feel. While still recording these songs for the debut Exposure EP in 2019, the band leaned into this evolution and their shared love of Italo disco, beginning to write what would become the New Earth album.

Recorded in isolation during a global pandemic, New Earth is a dark Italo record dappled with light. For eight new tracks, dancing synths perfectly balance the rich dream of a charmed life with melancholy. Guitars have taken a step back, allowing disco beats to flood the floor and joyful fun to prevail. The record anticipates a return to dance spaces, imagines shared experiences and celebrates personal power. Listen now to "Michelle Michelle" in the player below. Link
