The Line of Best Fit

You don’t have to buy into Lovett’s dystopian fantasy to see that Infinite Summer is a great piece of pop.

80
Clash
A more immersive, majestic and ultimately engaging release than album one.
80
Under The Radar
Its strength is not in delivering an immediate shot of aural adrenaline but rather in creating a dark, dramatic mood.

Exclaim!
Lyrically, the songs are often about longing and seemingly missed connections, but by creating such a rich and textured album, NZCA Lines connect strongly, expanding their sound and blossoming accordingly.
80
DIY
‘Infinite Summer’ is the classic case of an album that’s so fully-melded, so self-composed in its identity, that you get the nagging sense of déjà vu, that you’ve been here before, and yet it’s something brand new.

Drowned in Sound

Whilst there are many other bands doing futuristic disco, many of which band members have worked with, NZCA Lines’ unrelenting quest for a great hook and massive chorus pushes them ahead of the pack.

AllMusic

Infinite Summer's sci-fi pop blossoms under headphones, but it doesn't always live up to the promise of NZCA Lines or its concept.

Loud and Quiet
You find yourself held back, emotionally constrained, anticipating an irresistible chorus or a smack-round-the-chops melody which never quite arrives. It’s akin to Hot Chip minus the hooks.

"Infinite Summer es un disco para bailar. Una mesa sirve para colocar objetos sobre esta, una silla para sostenernos, y este segundo álbum de NZCA Lines es para mover el cuerpo y ya. Sin más pretenciones".

With strong and catchy synthesizers, Infinite Summer ends up being not only a ethereal and 80's inflected record, but a good written and pretty interesting point of view. NZCA Lines talk about dreams, constelations, love and galaxy, and it's surpringsly exciting. However, sometimes the sound can go off the rails and make you scratch your head in confusion, nevermind, I would dance all night on this if it'd let me travel through time and space.

I don't love it, but I don't hate. Maybe a bit too synthpoppy for my blood.
