CMU Approved

Approved: Novella – Land Gone

By | Published on Wednesday 11 February 2015


First approved in 2013 as a trio with an invisible-in-promo-shots drummer, London-based long-haireds Novella are now officially a band of five. They’ll ease into this fleshier new phase in their career with their first LP, ‘Land’, which is sighted for release on 12 May via Sinderlyn, sister label to the world-famed Captured Tracks.

Stemming the wait till then, Novella have previewed its lead single, a kind of negative of the LP’s title named ‘Land Gone’. The track finds the band leaning into the same salty, sleepy-head psych beat as on earlier singles ‘He’s My Morning’ and ‘Mary’s Gun’, digging cold, dark caves behind a bow-wave of rolling noise that crashes to a stop with their thrashiest finale yet.
