Ever wonder what it would be like to have a feminist or female James Bond? Well, the new video for Novaa’s Club Paradise will give you a flavour of what that prospect could look like.
Front and centre on the track are Novaa’s delicious vocals – edgy yet vulnerable, knowing yet coy, exuding an air of warmth and self-assuredness as the cinematic arrangement takes hold of the listener.
There are some understated nuances of the wonderful John Barry/Bond themes of the classic late 60s and early 70s here, but the song eschews the brasher tones of that era and instead echoes the complex, intimate sounds Barry did so well.
Club Paradise is no pastiche though, it’s clever, current and catchy and captures Novaa’s voice and spirit perfectly.
