Written during their return home trip from Stourbridge from a London gig, the four-piece witnessed an old man dancing on Camden Locks Bridge in his underwear not caring about what anyone thinks. Such an energetic event inspired the release of ‘Man on The Bridge’ and has since proven a popular favourite with their fans.
Refusing to be defined by a solitary genre, The Novus takes influences from a variety of genres and eras. Described in their Spotify bio as: “70s psychedelic rock to contemporary post-punk and are obsessed with every aspect of the eternal realm we call ‘art’.”
The four-piece includes Thomas Rhodes (Lead guitar), Tyla Challenger (Bass guitar), Euan Woodman (drums) and frontman Connor Hill (vocals).
Having only just recently released ‘Man on A Bridge’ it’s that special, it’s the bands first single to be pressed on 7” – we should all purchase it, I know I will be.
Now, the song itself is loud, in your face and would supply a raucous reception when performed live. Despite being a song about a man dancing in his underpants, The Novus has mastered a song which you can really get into and deserves to be played loud.
Formed of memorable guitar work and Connor’s distinctive vocals, a key to any Novus song – the four-piece have created another song which should feature prominently on your playlists.
