LMS caught up with Novellas this weekend to attend their Oxjam Festival set. Up in Reading, and in the company of a packed Purple Turtle audience, Novellas played a melodic 10 song set list including well known favourites such as ‘Foolish’ and ‘Doubt’.
Their infectious Dream Rock style creates a brilliant atmosphere within the venue, captivating the audience with their silky stage moves and mesmerising lyrics! They’ve created a brilliant and unique sound for themselves; recognisable throughout the ‘local music scene’ and this was evident from the reactions of the Reading Oxjam audience!
Along with tracks from their Double A-Side, which can be bought on their website they also introduced many new songs such as ‘Rue’ and ‘Chambers’, which despite not being as well known yet, still transfixed the audience with their sharp vocals and guitar driven melodies.
Even after only hearing them once, LMS know these tracks will lead to great things for the band!
For those of you unable to attend the night the Set list was as follows:
RESCUE THIS LOVE
After supporting acts such as Beach Baby, Man Made and Blackfoot Circle and their already large reputation within the Portsmouth music scene it’s no wonder the local trio are destined for big things.
After expanding from Portsmouth and playing gigs like Camden rocks, headlining both Hertford’s Love Music Festival and various venues in Camden and Shoreditch as well as Reading’s Oxjam LMS are sure they can only be going upwards within the music industry.
If you haven’t yet heard of Novellas, which we highly doubt to be the case, we urge you to check out their latest work as we can assure you, you will not be disappointed!
