Novella detail new single

Releases

Novella

Longhaired psych-pop lot Novella have pledged to release a new seven-inch single via Italian Beach Babes on 26 Nov, and its name is ‘Mary’s Gun’. “Why ‘Mary’s Gun?'”, you ask. Well, apparently the track is about Mary Weiss of The Shangri-Las, who – rumour has it – was caught by the FBI toting a gun she’d acquired after being scared by a hotel break-in. So, now you know.

In Novella’s words, it draws from “the rebellious, gang-like mentality of The Shangri-Las, contrasted with their sweet schoolgirl persona. Being in a band is a bit like being in a gang and we wanted to write a song about our favourite girl-gang”.

Listen to it now:

Novella are breaking a pause from live performance this Wednesday (17 Oct) at Norwich’s Take 5, and have some ad hoc further dates arranged through to late November.
