The Atlanta-based quartet finds their home blending elements of post-punk, soul, math rock, and psychedelic ambience to form an intricate sonic mutiny. The result is an engaging fusion of the wildly ranging influences of the members.

Being significantly influenced by film, the band’s name is borrowed from the 1960s Brazilian film movement, which inspires the group create scenes using sound, compose soundtracks for films they haven't created yet, and create a set of moving mental pictures to be re-drawn with every live performance.

Vocals / Haseena Peera
Guitar / Christopher Richardson
Bass / Matthew Klem
Drums / Shawn Moeckly

"Cinema Novo knows how to reduce their fans’ brains to the grey goo of rock awe. Their sound is rampaging rock that prowls the vast borders of psychedelic ambiance poised to strike and claim another shredding distorted, echoing chord when it shows itself; but bides its time by rolling forward with a rock swagger that is as appealing as it is fierce."

-Nanobot Rock

"Cinema Novo represents a fresh new voice in modern punk [and] progressive rock and presents a strong message that’s aggressive, upbeat, and highly melodic...Each piece is real — and very defiant in nature."

-Rock n’ Roll View
