“Intelligent, orchestral-tinged pop reminiscent of Bon Iver or Cinematic Orchestra…Novo Amor has released an incredible Blue Planet-inspired, eco-conscious new video for Birthplace, championed by everyone from 6Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs to Greenpeace!”
The video, starring world renowned freediver Michael Board, raises awareness of the horrendous problem of plastic waste in the world’s oceans. Ali Lacey (Novo Amor) has this to say about the issue:
“The presence of plastic waste littering our oceans is not a new issue, but it’s an issue that has been worsening for years and is something that we can and should be addressing. The problem is not only a threat to marine life, but also to the entire food chain, our whole ecosystem. When something impacts wildlife in such a profound way, we can expect it to impact upon us. The problems are manifold, the repercussions shocking, but there are ways in which we can raise awareness of such an urgent issue, and counter it.”
Novo Amor is releasing his debut album “Birthplace” in October and one of the few live dates will be his appearance at The Brudenell on 18th, on the eve of his album release.

Novo Amor is working with two UK charities – Julie’s Bicycle and Energy Revolution – to limit the environmental impact of his upcoming tour dates by minimising waste at shows and balance his fuel consumption and Co2 emissions. This self-applied ‘pollution tax’ will be used to generate clean, renewable energy through projects such as wind power generation and reforestation in India
