N0V3L 'Non-Fiction'

Flemish Eye recording artists N0V3L, will release their debut full-length, Non-Fiction on May 28th. The album is described as a “collection of agile, carefully-constructed post-punk, new wave and funk that’s been zapped and warped by an opioid overdose crisis, mental illness, populism, and the merciless onward march of time.” Today the band has given us a taste of the album with “Group Disease,” a track should be on all your mixed tapes and playlists.

lead-track “Group Disease,” comes a strong and poignant statement, that paint an accurate portrait of the troubling times we live in. “Obsessed with patterns amidst the madness/A lust for meaning, a search for balance,” sings vocalist Jon Varley. As guitars trade outbursts, he laments: “A group disease to ease despair/Submit, believe, no cross to bear.”

“Pushers” is a song that touches on Big Pharma’s construction of the opioid overdose crisis. Frenetic synth pulses over anxious guitars while Varley, channeling lived experience with opiate addiction while working in Vancouver’s downtown eastside, mourns: “They’re taking a life over taking a loss/They lower the price while raising the cost!” Final track “NOTICE OF FORECLOSURE” is a bitter, nostalgic submission to modernity, spiked with grief for a past forever gone and ambivalence for what lays ahead as Varley drones, “Forced adaptation, notice of foreclosure/Dragging us forward, an indifferent future.”
