nova materia’s powerful, hypnotic music incorporates eerie sounds generated by raw and mineral materials (metal, rocks etc) to create tracks that are in turn hyper-rhythmic and dreamy, poised between postpunk rock and electronic dance music. the band’s sound is already making headway in festivals & clubs as well as in the visual arts & performance communities.
nova materia is a duet consisting of caroline chaspoul from france and eduardo henriquez from chile. the band was born three years ago from the ashes of panico, the chilean alternative rock group with which caroline and eduardo toured around the globe and released several albums. after two eps produced a.o. in collaboration with french producer chloé and her kill the dj label, nova materia have joined the likes of acid arab, konono n°1, juana molina, yasmine hamdan and matias aguayo on the crammed discs roster.
ltd 2018 repress !! folamour comes here with a crossover 12-, exploring the whole spectrum of human emotion through his personal vision of a journey. the vinyl record starts with novalaise, sweet memory of the french country where the producer s from. the track builds itself up around a slow progression of a catchy acoustic piano loop. the listen goes on with la pierre et le sabre, in which folamour spreads his love for french 90 s house vibes, paying tribute to soul and gospel, two genres that mainly influence him. b-side starts with rue d amsterdam, an undeniably hip-hop influenced track on which folamour develops keyboards, bass and vocal samples around a rough beat, taking the listener away on an inescapable urban dream. the record ends with l Île des gauchers, bewitching song inspired by folamour s literary ravings (alexandre jardin in particular). the track progression can be compared as a book reading, rocked byan ubiquitous bassline, attending its voices until the last furrow.
