Idolising Nova are a 3-piece indie pop band from Peterborough who formed in 2016.
Jack Fulton Smith (bass & lead vocals), Kris Lee (guitar) 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.
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, 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.
Idolising Nova are set to release their new single “Run Away” on Friday 10th May, which was produced by Sugar House (worked with Pale Waves, Viola Beach and more) and mixed by James K Lewis (mixed for Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Charli XCX, Jess Glynne and more).
Tom Simkins from BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire had this to say about the track –
“Since we first heard them in 2016 we’ve heard Idolising Nova become a super tight band with a great ability to write fantastic, catchy tracks that have a habit of getting stuck in the back of your head.
This track takes the band’s already polished sound and with a few refinements takes it to another level, leaving us with a fantastic indie pop track which wouldn’t sound out of place on national radio alongside some of the heavy hitters in the music world.”
The band have announced slots at Hit The North Festival, La French Escapade in Paris and 110 Above Festival in 2019. They have more exciting things planned for this year, so keep up to date with what the boys are doing –
