bar italia, the London based trio of Nina Cristante, Jezmi Tarik Fehmi and Sam Fenton, have joined the Matador Records roster. Now, they release new single “Nurse!”. 

Capturing this pure addictive appeal in their vision, “Nurse!” hooks you immediately. From the tonality to the shifting raucous move, the driving rock force, and the dual harmonies that bounce off one another with this eccentric electricity. This thoroughly structured track shifts from post-punk-tinged attributes to fuzzy-fueled fervor, a hypnotic track that is unapologetic in its delivery. Relying on this unpredictable nature and touching on a melancholic theme, this track consumes you.

The band play a run of UK and European headline shows in May, including the ICA in London on May 25th, and will appear at festivals this summer including Primavera Sound Barcelona & Madrid, Latitude, Midi Festival and End Of The Road. A list of upcoming live dates can be found below.

Over the last couple of years, bar italia have released two albums and an EP on Dean Blunt’s World Music label, as well as several singles. Throughout 2022 they have performed at festivals including Pitchfork Music Festival London, by:Larm, OUT.FEST, Le Guess Who?, and End Of The Road, in addition to their own headline shows.
