Berlin-based experimental pop artist Novaa will drop her new album The Futurist early next year. She’s given a taster, as well as some handy tips for living in the age of surveillance, with the video for AI Am In Love.
A love song with a twist, Novaa’s vocals bring a warm, embracing feel to a sound she describes as ‘organic electronic’. Brassy RnB moments add to the sensuality the smoulders in the tight, minimal arrangement, showing that as unusual as it may sound, she has captured an interesting and beautiful duality on AI Am In Love. For all its electronic finery, the song is born of flesh, blood, and emotions – something you can feel in every beat and every note.
Novaa has spoken about the concept behind AI Am In Love and The Futurist: “So many technologies influence us profoundly, but they are barely discussed in the public. I wanted to break down really complicated matters into something more understandable and emotional. I don’t want them to evaluate the ideas expressed in them, they are neutral. Just a starting point.”
AI Am In Love is out now and available to stream or download on all major platforms including Spotify. Be sure to check out Novaa on her Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter socials for news about the song and upcoming album.
