released November 21, 2019

"4 brani in bilico tra suggestivo dream pop, post rock avvolgente e rumoroso alla Mogwai e synth-wave" (Rockerilla)

"Transporting and mood-altering, Novanta winds the listener down a pathway of sonic blooms and gardening marvels." (For the Love of Bands)

"Quasi colonna sonora di un film indipendente ambientato a Portland, "Some are stars" è un disco ben fatto, registrato anche con una certa cura e che, non ve lo neghiamo, in redazione ci è proprio piaciuto tanto anche e soprattutto per questa sua, precipua e viscerale, mancanza di fronzoli." (Rockit)

"Musica davvero avvolgente" (L'Alligatore su Smemoranda)

"Dense, impenetrable shoegaze pouring out of speakers in a fast and deafening manner" (Łabandzi Śpiew)

"Quattro brani che sanno di anni ’90 in maniera assurda, alcuni più sognanti, che ricordano il dream pop primi M83 (che tanto ci manca), altri che sfiorano lo shoegaze più ipnotico, ma gentile, made in Italy, in stile Stella Diana" (Indie for Bunnies)

"Their sound is a great one, but I want to know what else they have up their sleeves because I foresee them only going up from here!" (That Music Magazine)

"Il coronamento di un percorso che si dipana su tre lavori discografici e che qui dà un senso di compiutezza e maturità totali. Vorrei che questo progetto avesse degna risonanza nel panorama shoegaze non solo italiano, ma sopratutto straniero" (Shoegazin' Your Waves)

"Et le moins qu'on puisse dire est que le multi-instrumentiste Manfredi Lamartina ne manque pas d'idées. Accompagné du batteur Agostino Financo Burgio et de différents invités, il navigue tout au long des quatre titres de ce Some Are Stars quelque part entre post-rock et shoegaze, sans jamais céder aux codes du genre" (Dans le mur du son)

Track Name: Outside Noise
I'm fine when I sleep
Outside noise and deafness.
Look out and follow all the traces they left when it's wet
Take me out when it's evening...
Track Name: To Realize
“It looks a lot like you,
it’s everything you have”
Just looking at the floor
It’s everything you said
Lying in my fur
Like a bird, like a bear like a..

every day I’ll try
the city light will fade
If there’s a lack of love
I’ll see you there, my heart
where there’s a life of silence

I’ll see you there to pray
I’ll see you in the sun

I got lost inside
I will lose my sight
And in my darkest hour
I’ll feel my heart too raw
I’ll Feel myself into the light

Into the fire
Into the night
In my sea
I’m alive
Everything you said
Everything was wrong
All my life to realize
That’s you
