NOVABLOOD is a collaboration between Carlisle born House Music producer and former Burn The Negative / We Take Polaroids frontman, Mark Zowie and former Genic frontman, David Beattie. Their new musings were bound to take on an electronic mutation simply because of their previous output and their influences. The results are instant indie-electronic pop songs with an extended arm into dance floor territory. Think of a melting pot with Underworld, Gus Gus & New Order and you won’t be far from the mark. There was no great decision to write together, yet a simple long term friendship and love for both complimentary and contrasting styles of music. This brought both heads together to create an epic blend of chorus driven pop music. And now with live shows at the ready, it’s now possible to catch NOVABLOOD out there, somewhere, with their unique blend of songs and beats.
