Nova and the Experience ~ We Made

N.A.T.E. in NYC!!!

Who is NOVA AND THE EXPERIENCE?  One of my favorite discoveries since I started this blog.  N.A.T.E. is an infectiously fun 4-piece indie pop band from Sydney!  They are: James Buckingham(Lead Vocals & Lead Guitar), Anna Buckingham(Lead Vocals & Keyboard), Laurie Mahon(Drums) and Jake Asser(Bass Guitar & Back-up Vocals)!

My first impression of “We Made” : An energetic and free-spirited track about living life in the moment without any regrets!

My take :  NOVA AND THE EXPERIENCE sure knows how to put me in a good mood.  They are one of those great bands with the power to put a smile on my face just by listening to their music.  And with their latest track “We Made”, the imaginative band from Australia give me a glimpse of what life might be like living outside the “norm”.  And it sounds amazing.  Using playful yet purposeful lyrics, an upbeat tempo and the usual harmonious blend of Buckingham lead vocals, NOVA AND THE EXPERIENCE are able to paint an exciting picture of how fun living on my own terms can be.  Where I am free from the restraints of monotonous schedules and the pigeonholed expectations I have become all to accustomed to.  “We Made” feels like a call to carpe diem, urging me to grab a hold of all the happy in the world that I can.  And in an age of sour news and bad attitudes,  why would I want to live any other way!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
