Idolising Nova: Jack Fulton Smith (Bass & lead
singer), Kris Lee (Guitar & keyboard/ synth) and Kyle O’Sullivan (Drums and
backing vocals) are a 3-piece indie pop band from Peterborough, recognised
as one of the most exciting upcoming bands in the UK. Their achievements over
the past 12 months have been many: their catchy, anthemic music has been played
on national TV and radio, including BBC Radio 2 and ITV and they’ve toured the
UK and Europe extensively, including supporting The Vamps on their European
tour and slots at Hit The North Festival and La French Escapade in Paris.
Having spent time in the studio recording “Run Away” with Sugar House (worked with Pale Waves and Viola Beach) and the track then being mixed by James K Lewis (mixed for Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Charli XCX, Jess Glynne), we are left with a well-produced indie pop banger which has already received praise and support from Janice Long (BBC Radio Wales), Mel Lewis (BBC Radio 1 Music Team/ Best New Pop), Vincenzo Ferrara (Producer at BBC Radio 1), Joe Flemons (JJ, Capital FM) and Tom Simkins (BBC Introducing Cambridgeshire), as well as being played on ITV’s “This Morning”.
“Run Away” is undoubtedly one of
those rare animals: a big, catchy indie pop track that gets stuck in your head
after the first listen. As Jack from the band says: “We played it in Paris a
few days after it was released and people were already singing it back to us,
so it’s definitely an earworm! The lyrics are about someone escaping to a
“better world” and this feel good, easy to listen to track in itself gives you
a sense of escapism for a few minutes”
