NOVELLA share new single “Thun” New album “Change Of State” out February 17, 2017

Novella are happy to share a new single “Thun” off their forthcoming album Change of State.


“Thun” is the third track to be lifted from the London quartet’s upcoming sophomore album which drops on February 17 via Sinderlyn.  Throughout Change Of State the band juxtapose their signature dreamy and lush music with lyrics that speak to the politics of today.  “Thun” is no exception as Novella told the UK’s Beat Magazine, “‘The song explores the nature of borders and freedom of movement; the randomness of who this applies to and to whom it doesn’t.”

Change Of State was recorded over the period of a few months in the Victorian bedroom studio of James Hoare (Ultimate Painting, Veronica Falls) on an old 1960’s 8-track, this set up forced Novella to utilize an economy of sound on the album. They discovered that there’s beauty in simplicity and restriction as nothing could be gratuitously added or subtracted with the click of a mouse. It lent, what the band call a little Joe Meek magic to the process, and what could have been an added pressure instead gave way to instinct.
