Idolising Nova are a 3-piece indie pop band from Peterborough who formed in 2016.
Jack Fulton Smith (bass & lead vocals), Kris Lee (guitar & keyboard) and Kyle O’Sullivan (drums & backing vocals) played their first gig in June 2016 at The Voodoo Lounge in Stamford, near Peterborough with the 120 tickets selling out well in advance.
Since then their music has been played on:
BBC Radio 2 by Janice Long, Radio X, ITV’s ‘This Morning’, Kerrang! Radio, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire and more!
Alex Baker from Kerrang Radio said ‘I came across these guys a few weeks ago and I’ve just fallen in love with them! They are writing sick, timeless tunes and it’s very exciting’.
Idolising Nova take pride in being a good live band, with their aim being that people leave a gig feeling like they have watched a show, rather than simply watched the band play their songs. This is reflected in the crowd interaction and stage presence at shows, as well as big intros and extended versions of their songs.
“Idolising Nova have made themselves a name as a captivating live act” – Indie Is Not a Genre
In July 2018, Idolising Nova joined the United Talent Agency roster under Nikos Kazoleas.
Live shows of note include supporting The Vamps on their Night And Day Tour in Amsterdam, Paris & Cologne, 3 sold-out hometown shows, slots at La French Escapade in Paris, Hit The North in Newcastle and the main stage at 110 Above (2019), a headline slot on The Saloon Stage at Y Not Festival (2018), a show exclusive to BBC staff at the Broadcasting House in London and regular shows all over the UK with touring bands/artists.
In May 2019, Idolising Nova released “Run Away”, a single which was mixed by James K Lewis (mixed for Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Charli XCX, Jess Glynne and more). “Run Away” has been played twice on ITV’S “This Morning”, it’s had 40,000+ streams on Spotify and the band performed the track on broadcasting legend Janice Long’s show on BBC Radio Wales. It has also been played in shops, gyms & restaurants all around the UK including Accessorize, Monsoon, Dunelm, Carphone Warehouse, Butlins, Virgin Active, Bella Italia and more.
The new release was announced via Phillip Schofield on ITV’s “This Morning” followed by the full track being played. Phillip Schofield also tweeted the band saying that he “loved the track”.
“Party Through The Night” was chosen as the “Pick of the Uploader” on BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire – their favourite track of the week. Ellen from the show said “I’ve been so excited to play this track all week. I already love it far too much & it’s so incredible!”
The band have plenty of exciting things planned for this year, so keep up to date with what the boys are doing –
