Nova, we love you! Tell us about your EP!
HEY! thank you!! My first EP is called "Yellow" and it's been out for three whole days which feels so crazy. I've written three out of the five tracks so it's a very personal body of work. It means a lot to me because every song literally represents a season or a moment in my life that I´ve gone through. The response so far has been incredible and so positive! I feel very grateful.
What was it like creating the tracks? Do you have a particular favorite?
I mean I think I wrote about 50 songs and tried at least 50 ideas writing for this EP. It was definitely a really exciting process because I could see my sound really coming together after every song. The ones I chose to put on the EP were all songs we wrote in literally an hour and when we had such a vibe, and I'm super proud of them. My favorite would have to be Patterns probably. Or Plastic. Or Talkin Talkin, I love them all lol !
What is your typical creative process like?
I always write from personal experiences because it just feels more real to me. I usually start with a concept or something that I`m feeling in that moment. I try to sum that up in a title, find some nice chords I like and then it usually just comes naturally when I start freestyling melodies.
Who are your musical inspirations
Definitely Bruno Mars, I adore him and I just think he's amazing. Other then that I´ve loved Christina Aguilera ever since I was 5. I also take a lot of inspiration from classic artists like Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin and James Brown.
What was it like playing a show with Jack and Jack?
AMAZING!! They're super sweet and talented and their fans were really supportive of me, which was nice. I always love performing live, it doesn't matter if its one person or ten thousand people in the crowd.
What is the one place you would love to tour in?
I mean, the world (if that counts) but if I had to pick it would probably be Asia because the first fans I ever had lived there!
What's next for you this year?
I´m going to be performing a lot this summer! I'm going to open up for Fashion Week in Berlin which feels absolutely crazy and insane but also really fun, and I'm also going to be performing for the royal family for the Princess of Sweden's birthday !! I feel so blessed. I'm going to keep putting music out and also work really hard on my acting, which is also a huge passion of mine.
