It’s not a phase! The Nova Kicks are kicking it up a notch! On this episode, Asher sits down with Luis (Lu) Prado, Enrique Sandoval, Annie Kelly, and Brandon Fierro to learn more about one of the most beloved DIY bands in the Colorado scene and the most talked about band in the (in)doors series. The Nova Kicks classify their style as “a destructive sound wave of distorted grooves and soul”, not sticking too closely to any one genre and embracing the chaotic energy they bring into each and every performance. The Nova Kicks kick back, get down and personal, and open up about serious and important topics like living with anxiety, using music as a creative (and healthy) outlet, how COVID has challenged brought new challenges into their lives and what each band member looks forward to most when shows come back (plus all of us constantly interrupting each other because we can’t see when someone starts talking). This episode features The Nova Kicks’ newest track “The Phase” off their newest EP, “Son of a Stray” (which includes a super secret bonus song at the end)! You can stream “Son of a Stray” on all music platforms.
