UK prog metal/rock act Novena have today released the song ‘Sun Dance’ as a new single.
Taken from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Eleventh Hour’, it also boasts a video, of which the
band state: “The product of a close collaboration with The Cathy Waller Dance Company and
filmmaker Neil Monaghan, it is a passionate, dynamic and intense piece of contemporary
dance, at once romantic as it is violent, telling the story of two colossal forces intertwined in
a battle of wills.”
With soaring harmony vocals, an infectious rolling groove, and melodic guitar lines, ‘Sun Dance’
shows off another aspect of what to expect from ‘Eleventh Hour’, which is released on 6th March
via Frontiers.
Novena established themselves on the UK and international prog scenes in 2016 with the release
of their widely praised experimental EP ‘Secondary Genesis’. Boasting the unmatchable voice of
Ross Jennings (HAKEN) and inimitable poetry of Gareth Mason (Slice The Cake), the blistering
guitar work of Dan Thornton (ex-HAARP Machine, ex-No Sin Evades His Gaze) and invariably
musical drumming of Cameron Spence (Ravenface), plus the expressive and versatile bass
playing of Moat Lowe (Slugdge, ex-NSEHG) and the complex and nuanced compositions of
guitarist/keyboardist Harrison White, the band always delivers something greater than the sum of
its parts.
Novena’s music moves from the profound to the profane, from the fragile to the unforgiving, and
from the introspective to the utterly destructive, exploring a plethora of different genres along the
way. Despite this, every song on ‘Eleventh Hour’ has a solid and personal identity with memorable
choruses. The band state that “some songs took years of careful tinkering, while others were
written in one sitting during an insomniatic delirium. The aesthetic was always designed to serve
the story. Whatever the song wanted, we gave it.”
Lyrically, they describe the album as “an exploration of twilight, a dance in the space between life
and death, a collection of swan songs from people real or imagined. Something that connects us
all as human beings is the inevitability of death, and yet we all have our own totally unique
experiences of it. Those who have experienced it can never share their stories. Those who have
not, cannot contemplate it; all we can do is ask questions and tell stories. ‘Eleventh Hour’ follows
the last days of several characters who, whilst separated by space and time, are connected by
something greater.”
