Novalis is the nom de plume of the early romantic poet, Karl Friedrich von Hardenberg, and inspired the Hamburg musicians Heino Schünzel (bass), Jürgen Wenzel (vocals, guitar), Lutz Rahn (keyboards) and Hartwig Biereichel (drums) when they set about looking for a band name in autumn 1971. May 1973 saw the release of their debut, Banished Bridge, which had been recorded in English. Starting with the arrival of their second album, released in April 1975, their use of German lyrics ensured the band's constantly growing popularity.
Novalis was a 1970s Krautrock group formed in Germany. Their best-known albums include Sommerabend and Wer Schmetterlinge lachen hört.
