Sydney indie-folk-pop four piece Nova and the Experience have just released their anthemic new single “Jennifer Lawrence”. As the name would suggest the track is an ode to the no nonsense actor.

“I think her (apparent) honesty about who she is, is a great quality and makes her a great role model,” singer-guitarist James Buckingham explained. “I imagine someday her name will probably become a classic actress name like those of Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn and that is why we went with it for the song title.”

“Jennifer Lawrence” is taken from the forthcoming Nova and the Experience EP Where We Go, due this August. Check out the video below:

Nova and the Experience will be touring Where We Go in August. The full list of dates are below:

Saturday 9th August – Brighton Up Bar, Sydney, NSW
