Tiffany Brooke Mackenzie, better known as by her stage name Nova, is an English singer and songwriter. In May of 2014, she released a track via SoundCloud called 'Cheerleader' which gained positive feedback from critics and artists alike. She then signed a two album deal with Five Pesky Kids, the highly respected label owned by Weekend. She's currently working on releasing some new material before working on an album.

Nova was born in London, United Kingdom on July 28th, 1992 (22) to parents Emma and Christopher Mackenzie. She is the half sister of Victoria Rios, better known as Glamazon and has an older brother by the name of Oliver Mackenzie, who is a British model and actor. Nova got her start in music when she was 13 years old, finding influences from the likes of Peter Gabriel, Queen, Gwen Stefani, and Coldplay. "I just became so entranced with music, like never before. I never really paid music much attention until I was a teen." She attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in hopes of pursuing a career in music later. When she turned 17, she took an interest in the London nightlife and found herself attending night clubs and raves, most of which she would often write about later in the week. She gained more and more interest in poetry and took a job as a model to raise enough money for a session in a recording studio. When she quit being a model, she did small gigs where she would sing covers or would attend open mic nights for prize money, sharing her poetry for anyone who would listen. Finally, after 2 years, she had earned enough money, brought herself a small flat, and began writing more songs to record. In August of 2013, she recorded, 'Cheerleader' and sent the demo to record labels but was turned down, after not hearing from anyone.

She decided to try her luck again, the following year, when she personally created a SoundCloud account and uploaded the song. After a few days, the track has gained over 200,000 likes and shares. The song made it's way through social media but in a final move, she decided to keep the track anonymous until it was revealed through Culture Uncut she was the singer of the song. "My influence for that song was just 80's sort of pop. It's quirky and almost a little nauseous to hear after so long, like it's so happy. It's sarcastic and kind of witty in a way. I've been told I've got a smart mouth when it counts."

A few days later, the singer found herself signing her first record deal with Five Pesky Kids, for 2 albums. "I hardly believe it. I mean, it's a bit crazy to be signed already and I've only got one song. I just hope they don't tell me to piss off soon. [Laughs]" When asked about having Glamazon as a sister, she replied, "It's pretty cool I guess. I mean I always just saw her as a sister to me, not some big star that she is. Our styles aren't so far apart but they aren't so similar. I'm still figuring it all out, you know? I haven't got a damn thing planned, I'm just taking it as it comes. I'm shit at planning."

The name 'Nova' comes from her fascination with space. "I love space, it's just so unknown and huge, the possibilities are endless. I love things like that. I don't like when there's one set solution to everything, you know? I love ambiguity and uncertainty. It's no fun having all the answers and there's nothing left to explore. I'm just like that. I give a little here and there but I don't open myself like a book, what's the point?"

Released: May 26th, 2014
Genre(s): Synthpop, Alternative/Indie
Length: 3:37
Written By: Tiffany Mackenzie
Produced By: Seven Four
Label: Five Pesky Kids

Description
After shocking listeners with her surprise track 'Cheerleader' on soundcloud, English singer Nova decided to give us another taste of her style by releasing her debut single, 'Daze' on iTunes. The single is a complete 180 from her fun and quirky synthpop track which echoed in the minds of hundreds of fans. This time around, she's switched things up with the Syntpop, Alternative, Indie inspired track. The insistent snare beat provides a sense of forceful urgency beneath synth bleeps and Nova’s raw vocals which prove to be quite impressive. The track gives a little more compared to 'Cheerleader' in that you get to really focus on her voice and at the same time enjoy the quite addicting beat. Her vocals are on full display here as they glide across the warped melody, putting the listener in a sweet trance state. Although there are some parts where she plays with a little bit of vocal effect, it takes nothing away from her ability as a singer. In fact, just the ability to completely shine through a different sound just with a second track is credible.

Lyrically, the song emphasis a chaotic relationship which all started as he watched her dance. The transition from her vocals from the verse to the chorus is pure soprano heaven as she belts out a strong chorus which is also catchy. Her vocals really breathe life into the track, sounding sultry and sexy and all the while being mysterious and vulnerable. Critics praise the track saying it's completely out there without being too unfamiliar and listenable. The handclap-like beat gives a bit of playfulness with some dark lyrics that hint at the use of drugs and alcohol mixed with a sweet and confusing love affair. She begs the question, 'Can you find me? Can you?' and then ends the song with the repetitive 'And we dance' as the track stops.


Midnight crying my eyes out
Over you
5am we're good and my pants
You're getting into
What's the matter don't you like it like this?
I've been training to take all of your hits

Somebody caught me dancing
Cupid wasn't around to know better
Self-inflicted arrow through his sweater
His sweater, his sweater

Somebody caught me dancing
Smells like whiskey and cigarettes
Same love story, romeo with his modern Juliet
He left his sweater
And we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance

Shut my mouth with a kiss
I've never liked gentle or cared for forever
Something about us tonight
It could always end and I would keep occupied

Staring at my reflection in the rain
Wasn't intoxicated, but everything is in a daze, but can you
Can you find me, can you?
Can you find me, can you? Can you?
Can you find me, can you?
Can you find me, can you? Can you?
And we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance
And we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance

Somebody caught me dancing
Cupid wasn't around to know better
Self-inflicted arrow through his sweater
His sweater, his sweater

Somebody caught me dancing
Smells like whiskey and cigarettes
Same love story, romeo with his modern Juliet
He left his sweater

Can't you find me? Can't you find me? Can't you find me? Can't you find me? Can you? Can you? (Gypsy) Can you? Can you?
Can't you find me? Can't you find me? Can't you find me? Can't you find me? Can you? Can you? Can you? (Gypsy)

And we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance
And we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance, we dance

Music's latest rising star, Nova, talks with Fuse about her upcoming album, supporting her biggest Pop influence's on tour, and what she likes in a man.


What was it like working with Jared Nevo on your debut album?

"It was life changing, to be completely honest. I'm used to writing by myself, doing things by myself but having someone else who knows their music, who knows their sh*t, it's really refreshing. You can always tell when someone is passionate about their music and he's definitely one of those people. I actually requested to work with him because I'm a huge fan of Hey Lolita, so I wanted to work with him for my album, and he was sweet about it. He agreed and I told him my plans and everything about the concept and he thought it was a great idea, so we worked on it for months and months. We instantly clicked, you know, it wasn't awkward. I will say I was a bit starstruck, because he's like one of my musical influences, so I was afraid to work with him because I didn't know if I would live up to, you know like his expectations. I didn't want him to be like "Oh this sucks, I don't want to do this," so it was nerve wracking but fun."

What's your favorite track on the album?

"That's so hard, because I love them all so much. I think......I'd have to say probably, lyric wise, "Strain." It's probably some of my best lyrics I've written over the years with a wonderful concept to it. Production wise? I think "In Your Dreams" might just sh*t on everything! I don't know, it's hard, I love all of them but those two definitely stick out for me. They are two of the strongest songs on the album also."

How did you create the concept behind the album?

"Everyone keeps asking me if it's based on a true story and yes, it's all very real! The things I sing about have happened to me before. Even though the events are pretty much one sided, I think it doesn't hurt the story at all. And it's a brilliant story in my eyes, one night stands always are. And to those who think the album are events that happened in a matter of days, no, it was literally all in one day and one night that this all happened. It just seems like I was going temporarily insane for months."

Did you have any collaborations dreamed up for the album or did you want to go it alone?

"I wanted to go it alone. I, personally, haven't really reached out to many people for a collaboration yet and I felt like this album didn't need one at all. It's my story, my mouth has to be the one to tell it. Plus, it's like my first album so I wanted to test my creativity without having to answer to answer to anyone, you know what I mean? I didn't want to have to, and it sounds selfish, but I didn't want to have to adjust my sound to fit with someone elses when I had it all planned out for so long of what I wanted my album to sound like. I took the time to focus on myself and what I wanted as an artist, which is like the most important part of a record. You find yourself and you really find out what your taste is musically. It's different than listening to your influences but ti use them in your music is wicked."

Do you feel like there's a ton of new breed of new artists this year?

"Every year, the noobs pool, as I like to call it, gets larger and larger and it's cool. Newer artists getting the chance to get into the spotlight and get their music out to larger circuits is always a plus in my eyes. It just takes time. I always think the best talent has yet to be discovered sometimes, because new artists just continually shock me with how different and amazing they sound. I adore new artists, because I am one, so I like being able to grow with them and we all are basically growing up together in the industry."

How did the tour with GirlSpice come about?

"It's gonna sound crazy but I was actually told by my manager that I was going to be going on tour with them. I was like 'Wait, me and Girl Spice? Get the f*ck out!' I adore those girls, all of them. They were like my main pop influence when I was really learning to write and be a recording artist. I just love everything about them. They are the ultimate girl group and the best, to be quite honest. They influenced everyone and they just can't be beat or touched. It's really an honor to be going on the road with them."

Are you nervous about touring for the first time?

"I am, yeah. I love performing but I've never done it like across the states before so I don't know. I like new things and new challenges though so it'll be loads of fun."

What's something to expect from your live events?

"Lots of fun, always. I'm just a really silly girls who loves to have fun and just be myself on stage. I love performing, it's a wonderful art. And to perform my own songs is even better. I just like the fan interaction as well, because talking to them over Twitter and all these social media sites is cool and fun but to be there in their face and like seeing how they react is just plain amazing. I really can't wait to go to places like New York and Canada and my home country, Europe. I'm so excited."

Do you feel like you've established yourself as an artist yet or are you still experimenting?

"I'd say I have a smaller horizon than I did before. I quickly found out what I like and don't like but I'm totally still experimenting. I think all artists still experiment in some way, shape, or form. As an artist, you grow and sometimes your style changes. You start learning new concepts and new sounds so you never really truly stay the same no matter what. It's just all about experimenting and finding your niche then being creative. The entire album is one big experiment. There's different sounds, different eras, different vibes."

Biggest influences for the album?

"GirlSpice was definitely one, and of course Hey Lolita. Most of my sexual and dark lyrics come from them. I love alternative rock and alternative hip hop so there was some of that influencing me. I really love rap and hip hop, which you can hear through some of my tracks. I'm also a movie lover so I'd imagine some of my favorite movies with my music playing in the background, fitting perfect with the scene. I love dark, goth pop and bubbly pop so, there's that."

Jared Nevo recently called you his celebrity crush, what do you think about that and who is yours?

(Laughs) "He did, didn't he? Well, he's certainly mine! Not a bad looker. I would say I had the biggest crush on Billy Khan for a while. I always appreciated a good looking man. I think I have a thing for brunettes and you know, dark haired men, it's really attractive to me. But I don't discriminate. I do love men. Errr, I don't know, Erich Hess is a really funky guy, I love his look. The pompadour and greaser type look has always been a turn on for me. I know he's married and his wife is lovely but he's a cutie. I love a good pompadour."

Do you have a certain 'type' of guy?

"I tend to go for bad boys. I love bad boys. I like nice guys but I really like bad boys. I love the mystery and sort of chaoticness. I don't like to be too still or happy, you know? It's weird but I can't be happy all the time. I'm not saying I would date a complete assh*le but I'm not been known to date the type of guy who would risk their life for me. Also, he has to have good hair. I love a man with good hair. And even though I don't smoke, I like the smell of cigarette smoke on a guy, it's sexy. Cologne is nice but you're a real man if you have a cig in your mouth. (Laughs)"

Do you feel your album was 'dark' or too revealing?

"I think it's actually just the right amount of revealing. I'm not like saying anything too controversial but I'm not being too vague so, I think it's perfect. There's enough details to know the story and there's enough room for your imagination to run wild, which is what I want. The craziest scene you can imagine, it's probably happened to me. But I love pushing the envelope so I might even get heavier on my next albums. I'm a very sexual person, I love sex, and I don't hide it that much, as you can see with my single "Tasty," but I won't really just focus everything on sex, although sex is the main driving force behind this album. I'm sorta open when I want to be but I know when enough is enough. Dark? No, it's lightly dark. I'm not like praising satan or chanting satanic rituals or anything but there's some dark elements to it."

Cara: You are super unique and fun, which is something you don't always see a lot in the industry. You seem very easy going and I think that comes across in your music, depressing and moody music is always good but sometimes you need something jumpy and fun. I'm really looking forward to hearing your album! :)
