Nostromo is a songwriter who sails on sight between a time that no longer exists and a future that does not yet exist. Nostromo is a fish out of water. Nicolò Santarelli, born in 1994, writes about eros, and his music moves in an original space that goes from post electronic settings to retro scratches. Nostromo is something we live in our contemporary, in everyday life. It is the moment in which we find ourselves alone and we need to listen to ourselves, but also the one in which we want to let ourselves go. Nostromo is reality, passion and feeling. He is not vintage, he will never go out of style because his style will never pass. Nostromo is the tattoo under the loden, the turntable with which you listen to music but above all, Nostromo is the nostalgic memory that you can carry around and live in your future.
He writes his first song after a long chat with a dear friend of his, Federico, a name that he will also give as the title of one of his songs. This song, which will never be published, will give life to a new team, also thanks to a ticket won on a cold Thursday during the Europa League. In fact, this is how Nicolò begins to collaborate with Eliano Ficca Persichitti, the first member of the team. In the following months, the two began to collaborate with Francesco Caggiula (season) and Riccardo Belleggia, who already worked with him in the electropop formation including the HMCF Collective, with which a collaboration begins that will lead them to Trident Music and BPM Concerts, for a first album distribution which is licensed for Sony Music Italia. On the 10thof May 2019, Giradischi is released, the debut single which is well received by the public. The song will bring the artist on the cover of the Indie School playlist on Spotify for the next three weeks, also reaching Fiorello's ear, who will broadcast him as the opening song of his program Il Rosario Della Sera on Radio Deejay for two consecutive days. During the summer, Nostromo and his band participate in various festivals in Italy, in which they will share the stage with the greatest of the Italian indie scene. On the 10thof September 2019, Le Canzoni Di Mia Madre is released, the artist's second single that anticipates the debut album Minuetto, released on the 15thof November 2019.
On April 1, 2022, the single April is released, which anticipates the new EP Canzoni per gusto, canzoni per fame, consisting of 6 tracks in which Nostromo tells us about the beginning of seasonal changes, is the desire for spring and the shadow of summer and comes to the end of a songwriter's journey, which began in the chaotic 2020 characterized by a painful growth process, up to the current bitter awareness of still holding air in your hands.
As Nicolò himself states: «I wrote for pleasure and hunger, for myself and for others, to really feel good and to feed my weak ego in search of attention. I like to think that human beings are insecure and contradictory and I don't intend to hide this side of me».
