Novanta is Manfredi Lamartina.

Two years after “Best-Selling Dreams” gained excellent reviews from around the world, the new album by Novanta is due for release on the 17th of June. Novanta is Manfredi Lamartina, a musician originally from Palermo who has been based in Milan now for many years. With “Hello We’re Not Enemies” Novanta further evolves his sound, falling effortlessly between shoegaze, post-rock and electronica. The core idea of the album is the importance of empathy – in a period where human relationships are often based on aggression and on a division between “us” and “them”, here we find, we’re not enemies. This album is also a little act of love towards Iceland, a country where Novanta spent time traveling last year.

Novanta wants to thank these awesome artists: Ian Bonnar (seashellrecords.bandcamp.com/album/between-the-surface-and-the-sun), Claudio Cataldi (claudiocataldi.bandcamp.com), Fabrizio De Felice (bialogard.bandcamp.com), Giuseppe Musto (ilragazzodel99.bandcamp.com/releases), Raniero Federico Neri (soundcloud.com/vfor-a-v-word/sets/albedo-metropolis), Giampiero Riggio (haashaas.tumblr.com).

Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Goðafoss
Se fossi Dio vi scaglierei una tempesta contro
Se fossi Dio potrei fare tutto questo e molto altro
Se solo fossi Dio
Ma questa umanità è impermeabile
Se fossi Dio vorrei rinascere tra i tuoi capelli sciolti
Se fossi Dio sarebbe stato tutto un po’ più bello
Se fossi Dio avrei cercato di tenerti stretta e di non farti piangere
Ma questa umanità è impermeabile
Track Name: Mike
Talk to me
I won't say a word
Through the dark I shall walk
I'm awake
I won't sleep no more
Through the ice
Let me fall

Let me fall

Through your eyes
I saw something new
And I shall wait at your door
I'll forget everything I know
Through your eyes
Let me fall

Let me fall
Track Name: Tell a story
Tell a story that saves us from the drift
that talks like a thousand words
a thousand silences
our silence
Tell me about what we once feared
tell us what we dreamed
say the words, those loud words
Track Name: Blue lagoon
Coal black eyes,
Bodies trace the sky.
Burning low, turned away
Changing shape inside...
Cold black eyes,
Haunt my dreams at night.
Drifting out, the darkest day
There is a light but it fades away.
So let this world turn black again
Don't let the hours burn down
To change, to save.
So let this world turn black again
Don't let the hours burn down
To change, to save
We fall away
Will the sun come round to break us.
So far away
And this light won't bring me home.
Falling away
Will the sun comes come round to break us.
So far away
And this light won't bring me home again.
Till we go crazy...
Track Name: Melted eyes
Like preaching old songs
to throw stones
onto their faces

like stripping words
down to their meaning
to find nothing but dust

like taking off their clothes
and show their torn bodies
and show their torn stories

i would not worry

through your melted eyes
you’d see nothing but light
