Another band who have been quiet for FAR too long, Novella.
I saw the London based quartet (briefly a quintet) an awful lot of times over the first half of the decade and they are also one of the few bands I’ve travelled abroad primarily to see which I think sums up my feelings about them…
Land, their debut album was a long time coming itself, arriving three years after their debut EP but highlights a sumptuous cocktail of wonderful repetitive grooves, infectious hooks and sugary vocals. The most memorable moment being Something Must Change, a sprawling blend of psyche-pop which propels itself forward amongst a heady tapestry of scintillating guitars and machine gun percussion.
Please come back soon.
