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.
