I AM NOVA Release Electric New Single “Gotta Be you”

“We wrote GOTTA BE YOU about a friend of ours who always seemed have a feeling of loneliness after midnight – especially on weekends. He felt a desperate need for romance and affection, but at the same time he didn’t want to seem needy or desperate. One night when we were at a bar together with him, he walked up to a girl and delivered the phrase: “I need a girl, and it’s gotta be you”. It’s a very interesting sentence because “I need a girl” is very desperate, but when he adds “It’s gotta be you”, he thinks that he manages to not seem desperate anymore, but just really into this one girl. This became an inside joke to us, and we decided to write a song about it.” – Nova

The song is incredibly fun to play live, and the crowd always seem to sing along and somehow relate to the lyrics. Maybe we all have a friend like that, boy or girl.

I Am Nova started in 2012, and was initially a pure passion project. Unexpectedly, the song “I Need” gained huge popularity in their hometown, which inspired the duo to write and release more music. When their second single “Strangers” was released, they earned a nationwide fan base, which opened the door for I Am nova to tour with their unique live energy, filling the holes of indie rock hearts all over Sweden.
