Italian Desert music at Hot Box
“A dark, desert, hallucinated and decadent rock that evokes ghosts of Mark Lanegan, the last Johnny Cash, the more pulp Lou Reed.” Rumore Magazine (IT), February 2019.
Nero Kane is the nickname of Marco Mezzadri, a songwriter and musician already known in the Italian underground scene, now focusing on a new intimate, minimal and decadent path. Voice and guitar combine his European roots to American desert sound in a project full of dark and emotional visions. Love In A Dying World is the name of his new album, recorded and produced in Los Angeles by Joe Cardamone (The Icarus Line / Holy War), released on November 30th, 2018.
“Love In A Dying World” is also the title of the experimental film shot in California by the visual artist and performer Samantha Stella who joins Nero Kane in the live set on vocals and keyboards. The film was screened in museums and art galleries.
“Nero Kane sets off carrying existential melancholy on the path of a Nick Cave ideally accompanied by Ry Cooder of Paris Texas. You can enjoy the first singles Black Crows, Living On The Edge Of The Night and Now The Day Is Over through the beautiful Lynchian videos shot by the performer / video artist Samantha Stella as part of the eponymous experimental film.” La Repubblica (IT), March 2019.
