"To me, Gina is like a representation, an ideal of a true love. It could be someone or something. It could be your mother, your husband or even, your favourite guitar.

We in Novak have found our Gina. Have you?

Gina is the first single off our upcoming EP 'Girls'. Hope you guys will like it. It's one of my all-time favourite tunes and it's a cover of a Singapore band The Lilac Saints."

- Max Ho, February 2012


Suburban sky, it's 4th of July
It's all the waves against your head
No one cares, just jealousy
All these thoughts remain unsaid

Imagination running wild
I see you longing for a smile

Suburban sky...

Winter fades, seems so bright
All the winter clothes appear
No one cares unless it is me.
All the thoughts began to fade

This desperation bugging me
How I wish you'll let me be...

Suburban sky...

Infatuation and desperation...
