N0V3L have shared their debut full-length album, NON-FICTION.
The new 11-track record sees the band exploring what it’s like to live in the modern world beneath a delicate blend of post-punk, new wave, and funk. Thematically, NON-FICTION explores everything from mental illness to populism to the overdose crisis.
Alongside the album, N0V3L have shared a retro video for “FALLING IN LINE,” which is made up of vintage footage of people partaking in mundane tasks, but when put together it makes for an eerie commentary on social structures.

The intimate, dark sadness of the album is carefully juxtaposed with jagged guitars, captivating saxophones, and occasionally dance-worthy melodies, making for a nuanced collection of dark disco anthems.
