Our new single Stop Hurting is out now!
“One of the best sounds to grace my ears this last year were the ladies of Novas Basement, a three piece based in London, who delightfully mix harmonies, strings, warm banter and witty lyrics.”

We are also super excited to reveal our brand new Music Video by the very talented Gareth Axford:
A little bit about the song and the collaboration
Stop Hurting was written about 7 years ago after a trip to a beautiful Australian seaside town with a lighthouse. We’ve tried different things with the tune during the many times we’ve performed it… We’ve gigged it with piano, violin, cello and percussion, but late last year we finally settled on a stripped back arrangement that features simple acoustic guitar and 3-part vocals almost all the way through.
Late one evening after a rehearsal, we had an idea to create an animation to accompany this single for our new EP. We wanted a character who was innocent and sweet to take the journey with this tune, so we immediately thought about a collaboration with the talented illustrator & animator Gareth Axford. Gareth has a quirky and innocent style and spends his time tucked away with his art in country Wales after he made his own escape from London in recent years (much like the character in the music video).
We absolutely loved working with Gareth and he *really* delivered on our vague brief to ‘not be too literal, make it your own’… and sniff, the end result made us shed a tear a two (see the twitter evidence).
Thank you Gareth, and thank you to everyone for the kind messages and tweets of support these past few days.
Watch this space for the full EP release on the 6th of February!
