London alt-pop band Nova Neon release new single Stone To A Balloon
London alt-pop 5-piece Nova Neon have released Stone To A Balloon, the latest single to be lifted from their recent debut album Chroma. The bewitching new song showcases brooding soul vocals alongside interweaving guitar hooks and lilting electronica before building to an emotive crescendo.

Led by the bluesy vocals of Bianca Lewis, Nova Neon create intricate and original songs powered by electro grooves and indie rock dynamics. A busy first 18 months as a band has included headline gigs at historic London venues The Borderline, The Garage and The Barfly, a show-stealing performance at the Isle Of Wight Festival and a run of sold-out Sofar Sounds sessions. Press has been quick to recognise their talents, with online praise from Brooklyn tastemakers Afropunk and features with ultra-cool Brit clothing brand Original Penguin. Nova Neon also received radio airplay with BBC Introducing, BBC London and Amazing Radio last year.
To match the genre-crossing mix of sophisticated sounds on the new track, there is also a complex lyrical narrative. As Lewis explains; “Stone To A Balloon is a love song about a broken relationship, where one person is fighting to keep it alive whilst the other one drifts. The metaphor of stone to a balloon is used to reflect that - one person acts as the stone (the rock of the relationship) whilst the other is the balloon (the drifter). In a working relationship, the two counter each other harmoniously - but in this case, it’s the emotional realization that it no longer works that drives the song.”
Nova Neon will be playing live shows in support of the new single and album in 2017. For more info, head to novaneon.com now.
