Tele Novela Premiere New Single “Even Steven”

Tele Novella today offer us another taste of their new album House of Souls (out this Friday). Baeble premiered “Even Steven” today and noted “This Austin-based band is quirky, edgy, and they don’t take themselves too seriously — with clever and fun lyrics like “If you get a hand you shouldn’t bite it / If you get a cigarette you’ll need to light it / Give a mouse a cookie, it’ll ask for milk.” Front woman Natalie Ribbons acts out every word with her voice, making it fun and adding a slight growl under her breath. Because of course, how could she possibly deal with this moocher without growlin’ a little bit?Watch the video for “Heavy Balloon”

Of the track, Natalie Ribbons of Tele Novella noted, “Everybody knows at least one Even Steven. The kind of person that keeps track of time and money, but always in their favor. This is our vampy, passive aggressive, Quentin Tarantino-style roasting of all those assholes in one surfy, R&B sitting.”
