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, 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.
Idolising Nova released their new single “Run Away” on 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).
“Run Away” has been played twice on ITV’S “This Morning” and the band performed the track on broadcasting legend Janice Long’s show on BBC Radio Wales. It’s also being played in Accessorize, Monsoon, Dunelm, Carphone Warehouse, Butlins, Virgin Active and more all around the UK.
The band have plenty of exciting things planned for this year, so keep up to date with what the boys are doing –
