Novo is an electro soul quintet from Washington, D.C. Melding elements of jazz, R&B, and psychedelic rock, the group formed in early 2018 out of an impromptu jam session, during which the members quickly noticed that a fire had been lit. That initial session blossomed into a fully-realized sound, spearheaded by husband-and-wife songwriting duo Gena Photiadis (keys/vocals) and TJ Turqman (bass). Lead vocalist Tula Pisano seamlessly marries intricate melodies that are equal parts evocative and beautiful, complemented by guitarist/vocalist Nikhel Sus and drummer Matt Tredwell. The end result is a sound that is melodic, yet distressed. Retro, yet new. And, above all, full of light and energy.
