Lovelife are no stranger to pop anthems, having written a number of Hype Machine chart-toppers within the last year alone, but I don’t think anyone could have expected this! “Nova,” the group’s newest single, is arguably one of the strongest and most effective offerings that the band have released to date. You can really sense the work that went into this one: the production is both polished and unique, while avoiding the cliches that typically adhere to songs like this.
The live instrumentation is also a very nice addition to the group’s sound; a perfect compliment to the swelling synths and triumphant chorus. As the accompanying tag would suggest, there’s a faint presence of gospel that runs beneath the surface of the song. But while “Nova” is by no means a hymn, it could very easily lift the spirits of a crowded parish.
