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, 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 currently writing and recording new music with Sugar House, the production duo based in St Helens who have worked with Viola Beach, Pale Waves and loads of other great bands.
Idolising Nova have some exciting things lined up for the rest of 2018, so keep up to date with what the boys are doing –
