A documentary about indie group the National, presented at this year's Tribeca Film Festival
He’s a talented soul Andrea Nardinocchi. The Italian singer-songwriter was MTV’s New Generation artist of the month, part of the renaissance in vocals that has been sweeping Europe of late. His melodious, self-penned songs, crafted in the mode of Apparat and Thom Yorke on a laptop, resonate with hip hop rhythms and have the intensity of the likes of Michael Kiwanuka. His new single Un Posto Per Me (A Place For Me) is a subtle, introspective number with a strong hook that feels as if it is ushering in the Autumn. The soundscape may evoke the dream world of Massive Attack, but that hook is all Italian – not only the lyrics but the playful melody. The 26-year-old uses his computer to create an ever-morphing universe that pulls in styles ranging from rap to rhythm and blues to contemporary pop. Un Posto Per Me anticipates his forthcoming album. There is one thing for sure: with his new single Andrea Nardinocchi has made a place for himself.
