Nero Kane has released their new video for the track titled ‘Lord Won’t Come’. A dark track in the vein of David Lynch that wrestles with the subject of faith and spirituality, the song and video does such with a darkly artistic flare only found with true originality and dystopian grace.
About Nero Kane
Nero Kane (real name Marco Mezzadri) is an Italian songwriter whose music is intimate, minimal and decadent. Both in his vocals and guitar style, his European roots intertwine with America’s desert rock sound in a project full of emotional vision. With an eye open to blues and classic songwriting, his music is particularly concerned with death, religion and love.
Recorded and produced by Matt Bordin (Thurston Moore, Michael Zerang, Jackie O’ Motherfucker, Delaney Davidson, Squadra Omega) near Venice at Outside Inside Studio, ‘Tales of Faith and Lunacy’ is released on vinyl via Nasoni Records (Berlin) with CDs being put out by BloodRock Records and on cassette tape via Anacortes Records.
“Tales of Faith and Lunacy” is a visionary story with a cinematic flavor – a timeless journey conceived in a personal vision of faith between spirituality and passion. Featuring Samantha Stella as singer, musician and lyricist, and Nicola Manzan (Bologna Violenta) as guest violinist, this record unfolds in a desert landscape where medieval European mystical influences blend with the flavour of the American West to ultimately weave gloomy, minimal psychedelia.
Hypnotic ballads press to the rhythm of a horseback ride through dusty prairies, where echoes of holy women appear in the heat of the day and in the chill of the night, including Mechthild Von Magdeburg, a thirteenth-century Christian mystic, whose writings are quoted on the album. Readings with a gospel ring converge in a crescendo of old-time organ and string music.
His 2018 debut album ‘Love In A Dying World’ was recorded and produced in Los Angeles by Joe Cardamone(The Icarus Line / Holy War, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cult, James Williamson of The Stooges, Warren Ellis, Mark Lanegan), and released via LA art collective American Primitive. His sound has been described as suspended and crepuscular music with the melancholy of Nick Cave and the latest from Johnny Cash blend with sparse psych-folk and stark blues-rock with a distant, lost and frozen voice.
The album was accompanied by an experimental film shot in California by Italian visual artist, performer, and filmmaker Samantha Stella, who joins Nero Kane for a live set. The film has been screened in museums and art galleries. The duo has performed in many European venues, including theaters and churches, their most recent UK tour being in February 2020.
