bar italia announce new album details, share “punkt” Sam Mercer

bar italia, the London indie rock trio of Nina Cristante, Jezmi Tarik Fehmi, and Sam Fenton, have announced details of their debut album. Tracey Denim will be released digitally and on CD on May 19 with a vinyl release to follow on September 8.


Today's announcement is accompanied by the new single "punkt," a deceptively dark exploration of fear, control, and the power of nightmares. Scroll down to listen now.

Tracey Denim is the third album from bar italia after two albums and an EP on Dean Blunt’s World Music label — the new project will be released via their new home, Matador. The lead single "Nurse!" was named a Song You Need last month. In May, the band are due to headline a U.K. and European tour with festival dates including Primavera Sound Barcelona and Madrid to follow in the summer.
