Novella’s second record is a snapshot of the world seen through the window of their tour van. After the release of debut album ‘Land’ in 2015, the London four-piece toured extensively, watching their homeland change dramatically while they shuttled from country to country. ‘Change of State’ deals with mutations of thought and emotion, as well as physical transformation. A deeply reflective album, it’s both current and unmoored. The record’s political themes feel timely, but instrumentally the record could have come out at any time during the last decade.
