The Novus are continuing their meaningful but mega rise to the top of the Brum indie pile, and tonight they snatch the opportunity with both hands – silky, confidence and incredibly on-point, the talent of all members are evident as they lock into purposeful grooves, creamy riffs and splendid vocals.”Counteract

The Novus bring energy and balls to everywhere they go which is conveyed by their latest track BREAK, delivering a raw, gritty, garage rock vibe with splashes of punk and rebellion – they know somethings not right and they’re making a stand with their ‘ left hand held high ‘. A metaphorical breath of fresh air is what the lads bring to the table, a literal breath of fresh air is whats needed after belting out their huge new tune.

After playing their first gig in a dodgy garage, the band have worked their way into finer establishments across England such as The Camden Assembly, O2 Academy 2 / Institute 2 and The Hare and Hounds. This year FLARES have been busy playing packed tents at festivals such as Y Not Festival and Camper Calling, selling out headliners and supporting the likes of Fickle Friends, The Magic Gang and Barns Courtney.

Since releasing their debut single, ‘Tunnel Vision // Castle of Cards’ on Jan 3rd 2019, FLARES have followed up with another three singles, ‘Keep It’, ‘Lightning’ and ‘Stuck’. All tracks were received well (around 50k streams on Spotify, and topping 2k monthly listeners). They have had a lot of radio airtime and interviews, including being featured on BBC Introducing.
