Nova Charisma blends the seemingly incongruent genres of technical post-hardcore and indie pop rock. The Sacramento-based duo is composed of Donovan Melero and Sergio Medina of prog-rock outfit Sianvar, who juggle math rock components and jazzy riffs with a surprisingly poppy end result. It’s a strange amalgam that works and helped the band find its own niche.
