Millenia Nova is a music duo from Munich .
Mathias Neuhauser and Michael Meinl met through a mutual friend. They worked together on a commercial jingle and became good friends. They made the decision to start a band - even though both came from completely different musical backgrounds. While Neuhauser felt more at home with Ska and Punk , Meinl came from the Techno and House area . The meeting of these two worlds led to a symbiosis of electronic music, independent , rock , pop and ambient .
Since the two people from Munich, according to their own statements, cannot sing themselves, they hire guest singers for their musical works. For the third album Narcotic Wide Screen Vista the duo was supported by Thomas Hanreich ( Vivid ), Chris Neuburger ( Slut ), Kelli Ali (Ex- Sneaker Pimps ), Alison (The Beangrowers ) and rock icon Iggy Pop .
The collaboration with Iggy Pop on the song Rockicide arose from a spontaneous idea to hire a superstar for the third album. Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams didn't respond to the attempt to contact, but Iggy Pop knew the Millenia Nova song "I'm dead" on a New York radio station and said yes.
