NOVA ONE – “violet dreams”

NOVA ONE is the musical project of Providence-based Roz Raskin. Their debut album is out in April via Community Records, who also released 2018’s secret princess EP. The forthcoming lovable is a stellar collection of songs that puts a dream-pop edge on ’60s pop tropes, all while exploring gender, femininity, and queerness.

The first of those we get to hear is “violet dreams,” a reflection on beauty standards and personal presentation that seems to shroud Raskin’s melancholy in a gleaming haze. In a press release, they explain, “this song feels celebratory to me. it’s generally been a tough year for me emotionally. it’s also been a time for lots of self-reflection.”
