We recorded ‘Nova’ while making Violet Street with every intention of putting it on the album. At the very last moment we took it off, but are happy to set it free now. It’s about the haze that surrounds you when you first fall in love, the all consuming fantasy of it. The recording was a prime example of the wild processes we undertook with our producer Shawn Everett.

Like a mad scientist, Shawn spliced together moments of us jamming live as a full band inside his warehouse and the sound of smashing beer bottles into a trashcan. We edited all of it to sync up with the scene in Interstellar where Matthew McConaughey goes inside a black hole. With that scene being too long, we ultimately edited it to sync up with Playboi Carti’s music video for “Location.”
