There's a certain kind of comfort that The Novel Ideas
provide in their music. Whether it's their soothing voices, their harmonies or their penchant for songwriting, but the Massachusetts-based band definitely has a kind of talent that can't easily be ignored. The country-folk quintet of friends composed of Daniel Radin, Danny Hoshino, James Parkington, Sarah Grella, and Nick Mitchell spent the past year playing shows in support of their debut album Home
, which they recorded in a barn in Jaffrey, NH.
One of the group's favorite songs to perform live is "Old Ways," which they refer to as their "sing-a-long" song. The Novel Ideas shared a video of themselves singing this particular track as a part of The Hardwick Sessions, for which Grella leads the vocals. In the video below, you may notice a sound driven by harmonies similar to those of The Lone Bellow
The Novel Ideas are currently working on their next record while planning to tour across the States this spring. This Americana rock band seems to be on the road to greatness, and we'll be on the lookout for what this year brings for them.
