Gold Coast melodic hardcore/metalcore band Novus have dropped an introspective and powerful new single called 'Reflect', the video for which is premiering below ahead of its official release on August 28!
Just like the song's title suggests, drummer/lyricist Jon Prestage says that 'Reflect' is about being able to move past difficult times in our lives by looking within ourselves:
"The song explores the constant war going on inside someone’s head as they try to battle their mental demons and find true happiness and love within. Reflect is a song that most people will be able to relate to, as we all suffer hardship at times in life and become lost, not knowing what to do next. The key is to never give up, no matter how hard life may seem.
(It's) a story of realisation and self-reflection, coming to terms with past events that have caused heartache and seeking ways to right the wrongs and have a fresh start. People often pour so much love and attention into something or someone else that they end up losing who they are in the process."
Novus are adding some great new material to their arsenal which they'll no doubt be capitalising on with live shows once touring is allowed once more. Having already shared the stage with some Australian heavy-hitters like Void Of Vision, Windwaker and The Brave, they're well on their way to earning an established reputation of their own.
'Reflect' follows up on both Novus' earlier 2020 single 'Hopeless' and their 2019 EP Solace, which is streaming below too.
