This Is My Hand

This Is My Hand will be released on September 16th, 2014 on Asthmatic Kitty Records. This Is My Hand features ten new songs, including the first single “Pressure,” which premiered at NPR Music. Of the song, NPR Music praises, …a stirring song powered by an incredible drumline…one of the most powerful and dramatic voices of the past decade,” while Stereogum proclaims, “…‘Pressure’ is something to be reckoned with. Filled with an army of percussive sounds from big drums to twinkling bells along with shrieking brass and crushing synths, it’s a huge production, but it all sounds small compared to Nova’s operatic voice.”

This Is My Hand was recorded in Berlin, New York, L.A. and Nova’s re-adopted hometown of Detroit with producer Zac Rae. Of her inspiration behind the album, Nova comments, “The genesis of the new album was looking at the changes that have happened in music over my career, and trying to reevaluate what it meant to me in the first place: ‘what is the value of music’ is essentially the question. In the States, the marching band is something that is done in school, so it still represents something inclusive, something that anyone can learn. I loved the communal quality and the way that drums and horns travel in large three-dimensional spaces.”
