Album Notes
Cinema Novo began as a recording project of guitarist Christopher Richardson. After several years writing and recording arrangements for a large band proved unfruitful, Christopher brought in drummer Shawn Moeckly and stripped-down an original collection of songs to be recorded and performed as a duo, with electric guitar and drums. The songs on this EP were almost 5 years in the making, and according to the band were "very close to never leaving the confines of a hard drive."

The band's name is borrowed from the 1960s Brazilian film movement of the same name, which embodied the imagery of the band's music with its common themes of populism, violence, exploitation, and political realism. For Richardson, Brazilian director Glauber Rocha's famous phrase "an idea in your head and a camera in hand," translated to "sounds in your head and a guitar in hand," as he pushed the duo to do more with less, overcome obstacles, and create a series of "scenes" using sound.

This EP is a dark room of sonic snapshots of rebellion, alchemy, attraction, falling bombs, and propaganda.
