  • Biography

    NOVATIA is the brainchild of Ingmar Kops (synth and piano), Joep Selen (vocals), Joost Lobbes (drums), Fabian van Dijk (bass) and Rindert Bul (electric and acoustic guitars). Having played in various prog/metal bands, these musicians grew tired of creating complex music just for complexity sake... So they took a step back to reinvent themselves. Calling their new project NOVATIA (based on the Latin word “novate”, which means “reinvention”), they started playing more from the heart and less from the mind, searching for the perfect balance between keeping their music interesting while keeping it accessible. By sticking to song structures that are simple and to the point and focusing on an upbeat outlook in lyrics, NOVATIA offers a positive and light alternative in a musical climate often dominated by dark and heavy undertones.

    Using improvisation as a starting point and relying on classic recording techniques in the studio, NOVATIA created an impressive collection of melodic songs that move somewhere between rock, pop, jazz, funk and (neo)prog. These songs flow seamlessly from spherical and progressive soundscapes to energetic riffs or jazzy and funky grooves, while maintaining a sound that always is immediately recognizable as NOVATIA. So far, the band released two EP’s: the debut “Remind you of yourself” in 2015, followed in 2016 by a second EP “Reflection of Thoughts”. A third EP is expected to be recorded and released in 2017.

    In September 2015, NOVATIA released their debut EP “Remind you of yourself” which got many favorable reviews: “Not only this album is wonderful, the production is also top-notch!”, “pure, uncomplicated music combining psychedelic rock, jazz, funk and pop into an interesting blend of styles” (, “The band sets the bar high for their compositions; these guys know how to write a good song” and “skillfully composed neoprog songs that are very easy on the ear” In the studio, the band relies on classic recording techniques. By recording the tracks in one take with all members present in the recording room and without click track, NOVATIA managed to capture the mood and dynamics of their songs and to give the recordings their distinctive live feel. The second EP “Reflection of thoughts” is scheduled for release in September 2016.

    When playing live, NOVATIA is not afraid to take risks and improvise. The band is dead set on bringing across the emotions of the songs to the audience. In 2015 and 2016, NOVATIA played several successful live shows in the Netherlands. Highlights include performances at TivoliVredenburg (Rabo stage), ProgFrog Nieuwerkerk and ’t Parktheater Alphen aan de Rijn (as support of Silhouette). “The band plays versatile music and they don't stick to one genre, playing a real mixture of progressive rock, metal, jazz and even reggae. It was clearly visible that the band enjoyed performing on the stage. The audience really loved their performance, and so did I! This band is a Jack-of-all-trades and a very good live band to watch. I do hope that I will see this band live again very soon!”
