Nova are an Irish rock n' roll outfit formed in Stradbally, Co. Laois in August 2018.

The band consists of lead singer and rhythm guitarist Fionn Marum, lead guitarist Matt Carroll and bass guitarist Joshua Brennan.

The band released two well received singles, 'Slip Away' and 'Up To Fate', in December 2018 followed by a five track EP entitled 'Electric Waves' in March 2019, which has received extensive airplay in both Ireland and the UK.

The band have played shows and festivals around Laois and the surrounding area since forming, such as in the Dunamaise Theatre, Old Fort Festival and Spring Fling Festival.

They are set to release their latest single, 'You Got It' in early June 2020.
