Nova Flares presents surfgaze dreamery in new single ‘Krokodil Tears’
Alternative rock shoegaze artist Nova Flares presents ‘Krokodil Tears’, which is the second single off his forthcoming self-titled debut EP, expected for release in mid-2018. This single follows in the tracks of the solid and beautiful surf-gaze single ‘Gut Splinter’.
Nova Flares is the solo project of Jason Wagers, whose music as a solo artist cleverly combines shoegaze with neo-psychedelic and surf rock. The result is mighty fine bedroom jangly surf pop packed with flowing dreamy harmony and charming, lo-fi goodness. This hypnotic guitar shimmer packs the magic punch intended.
Conceptually this song imitates the simple idea of two energies traveling towards one another and creating a beautiful reaction. The verses are slightly sensual sounding and invoke motive, the pre-chorus comes in and sounds so peaceful, yet there remains a slight feeling of chaos in the mix. Then suddenly everything starts feeling easy going and perfect after the chorus hits, like everything is just the way it was meant to be.
“This song, along with every track being released on the coming EP, are meant to be strictly musical however, I intentionally made these tracks very spacious and vibey so that the listener could attach whatever memory or emotion that they get while listening to a song. This should be a more personal experience. To me, that means that to every different listener, it’s a completely different song, and I like that idea. Similar to the idea of a “nova flare”, this ends up being a memory of giant reaction.”
