“Does the Island Know” is taken from this UK-based quartet’s forthcoming sophomore LP, Change of State, which is set for release on February 17, 2017 via Sinderlyn. Fans will be expecting another album on par with the loveliness of their highly lauded 2015 debut, Land, and judging from the two new songs streaming on Bandcamp, Novella plan to deliver just that.
This song, which will be the album's opener, showcases the reflective and psych-tinged sound Novella is best known for. It’s a beat-driven groove that will no doubt set the tone for the entire record. A charming video by Yuki Yamamoto, which can be viewed below, has just been released to go along with the track.
