Boasting eleven electropop originals, Nova is produced by Måns Ek and written by a galaxy of international songwriters, including American lyricist Charlie Mason, Måns Ek, Dirty Dasmo, Crush Boys (Daniel Volpe and Thomas Lipp), Erik Gold, Dirk Homuth, Johan Emmoth, Erik Lidbom, Richard Hymas, Ricardo Autobahn, Anders Lystell, Linda Stenmark, Florian Buba and Neele Ternes.

Nova’s single releases have received critical praise with ‘Jealous,’ described as “high-energy, sexy, and entertaining.” The follow-up single “Never Ever” has drawn comparisons to The Pet Shop Boys, Visage, and Kylie Minogue.

“Kim brings (Never Ever) to life with his beguiling vocals, injecting the lyrics with a studied heart and passion that is hard to resist. He effortlessly recreates the sounds of classic 80’s synth bands yet manages to remain distinct with his own tonal qualities. He is the anchor of the song, holding together all the elements and steering them to an exhilarating conclusion.” – myfizzypop.com

Nova is available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify!
