Video: Novella || Sentences.

Whimsical, funny and lovely all at once, here's the video for London, England quintet Novella's track "Sentences", a high point from their 2015 debut full-length Land. We recommend the vinyl edition of the album because it comes with a 7" of two outstanding additional tracks, "Blue Swallows" and "Younger Than Yesterday"the title of the latter referring to The Byrds' classic album of 1967.

Land anchors Byrdsian psychedelia to krautrock grooves and threads effervescent jangle with visionary lyrics to transcendent effect. The band is also capable of a proper kiss-off tune, as evidenced in the somewhat BJM-like live din wonderfully conjured in this performance.
