Novakane from Coventry in England is the alt-rock quartet of Adam Collins, Jordan Nevin, Ryan Leaper and Will Malpass.
Novakane is able to slip 90% cocoa chocolate with whisky to produce material which furiously stomps across the floor as the ploughing bass furrows the soil to which a triumphalism of guitar skips across discard, whist a harrying percussion ferrules the tracks ever forward as the vocal provides the conquering flag.
There is an after dinner warmth to an argumentative discourse over the preambles that Novakane induces with their layering wafts of sound that float across the room, as they make coherence of polarity, in compositions which finds the audience in concordant tempo.
Collins, Nevin, Coventry, you may ponder – have I heard this combination previously? You are right back in 2012 Urban Spirit were introduced. Novakane takes a darker template with more imagery as the quartet reflect on possibility as much as inevitability, in sounds which comment on the cut and thrust of 2015.
As I write, on the 12th, these are comments on five fresh tracks, merely hours old and given the starting point Novakane have far the potential to travel far, I merely caveat I also thought that of Urban Spirit. If this is the right combination of creators, expect to hear more. If not – expect me to be introducing Adam Collins and Jordan Nevine in another three years.
