Novella - Novella EP

Novella's debut single 'The Things You Do' hit us hard prompting instant infatuation, so it's pleasing to report that their five-track debut self-titled EP offers up a similar dose of scuzzy deliciousness.

Opener 'Eat Yourself' is the most immediate slice on here, all thudding drums and breathy vocals, but the real treats are served up in the six-minute plus efforts of 'He's My Morning' and closer 'You're Not That Cool'. Picking a favourite of the two is like picking a favourite child, but the latter's slow-build is particularly magnetic with the softer vocals providing a perfect match. When 'The Things You Do' dropped, we proclaimed Novella to be "one of our favourite new bands around". This EP proves we weren't wrong.
