On 27th September, Idolising Nova released ‘Party Through The Night’, a new track produced by David P Goodes and released through Yada Yada Records, which is the band’s first label release. The new release was announced via Phillip Schofield on ITVs ‘This Morning’, followed by the full track being played. Phillip Schofield also tweeted the band saying that he “loved the track”.
Amy Bell spoke to Idolising Nova about ‘Party Through The Night’ and their 2020 plans.
Hi guys, thank you for chatting to Essentially Pop, how are you?
Hello! We’re all good thanks! HOW CAN YOU NOT BE GOOD WHEN IT’S CHRISTMAS THIS MONTH?
Your new song ‘Party Through The Night’ is such a good vibe, can you talk to us a bit more about the song?
Thank you! The track is all about how you go through your everyday life at school, college, work etc, thinking about how you just wanna go out and have fun with your mates…the weekend comes, you have fun with your mates, then you go your separate ways, back to reality, your everyday life.
What inspired you to write this song?
Literally going through the above scenario at work…thinking about the weekend, buzzing for a night out with my mates, then Monday comes and it’s back to reality! So yeah, that feeling inspired us to write this track.
What was the recording and writing process like?
The whole process was great! We fired some ideas over to each other (mainly WhatsApp voice notes), then we recorded a demo in Kris’ bedroom. We then took it into the studio with a really cool guy called David Goodes. We bounced more ideas off each other and ended up with this bop!
Any plans for any tours?
We are really keen for some support tours in 2020, but nothing confirmed at the moment. We are playing at Camden Assembly in London on Saturday 1st February though, which will be fun!
Does the new single mean any EPs on the horizon?
Not necessarily an EP, but definitely more music real soon!
What message do you want listeners to take away from ‘Party Through The Night’?
I guess the message is that we all get that feeling every now and then where we don’t want to be doing what we’re doing – but we’ve just got to make the most of it when we can do what we want to be doing, like having fun with your mates! MAKE THE MOST OF THE WEEKENDS PEOPLE!

What is coming up for you guys in 2020?
New music and hopefully lots of live shows, all around the world!
