Raised in Ashland, Oregon (now based in Los Angeles), this nova star of the electro-pop galaxy, Carolyne Neuman, now known as NOVI, is hitting the scene like a bullet straight from a rifle. The star marries the charm of her small-town upbringing with the edgier elements of big-city Los Angeles in her forthcoming EP, “Now I’m Here.”
The intro to her first EP captures her essence as an artist, and leads you through a psychedelic fantasy world filled with effervescent sounds that get you ready for the journey that is NOVI (derived from the Latin phrase ‘Homo Novus’, meaning ‘New Man’).
I just love her new single Blackbirds. This is not the greatest of videos, but it'll let you hear the track.
Here is a more interesting video covering the making of Blackbirds.
