Vancouver’s N0V3L have just released two new tracks, “Natural” and “To Whom It May Concern,” in honour of the announcement of their debut EP, NOVEL.
The tracks are full of stiff, wiry guitar lines that constantly circle each other for a bouncy, upbeat tone. From funky beats on “Will To Power” to rigid disco strains on “Natural,” this new band really know the intricacies of their sound. With sneering vocals and sharp, jagged lyrics, N0V3L combines post punk friction with new-wave dance tracks and a sort of political funk.
Listen to “Natural” and “To Whom It May Concern” below.
N0V3L’s upcoming self-titled debut EP is set to be a “call to a burnt-out dance floor, where the dance floor has become a space of dialogue and action and resistance,” the band explains in a statement.
