NZCA Lines - Pure Luxury

These may be difficult times, but NZCA LINES will be throwing the greatest party ever nonetheless.

NZCA Lines - Pure Luxury

While we’re all confined to our houses as lockdown rages on, NZCA LINES has lovingly decided to bring the disco-pop party of the apocalypse to us. Born out of the political transatlantic shitstorm, ‘Pure Luxury’ finds Michael Lovett processing unsettling times through a shimmering pop-funk lens. Taking on the problems surrounding the world, the sleek and groovy ‘Larsen’ tackles the break-up of the Larsen C ice-shelf in 2017, while the bass-driven ‘Real Good Time’ sees him exploring the concerns of agricultural chemicals and overpopulation over the hook-laden backing. Elsewhere he gets more personal, lamenting a toxic relationship on the undisputed funky foot-stomper ‘Prisoner of Love’, analysing online love on the cinematic ‘For Your Love’, and the more delicate electronic ‘Take This Apart’ that details a love affair coming to the end. Transforming troubles into huge disco-pop bangers, these may be difficult times, but NZCA LINES will be throwing the greatest party ever nonetheless.
