NEW MUSIC: Novelty Island – The End Of The Whirl

square-1579736936797

Here’s some lush and immersive psychedelia courtesy of London-based musician Tom McConnell who records as Novelty Island. Recorded at the Abbey Road Institute’s studio, ‘The End Of The Whirl’ is an infectious cosmic trip that draws on the pop heavy explorations of The Beatles and more obscure English psych acts. The winning ticket is in the way he blends the hooks with a glam stomp – a warm and suitably warped cousin to Oasis, stripped of the posture and bombast.

‘The End Of The Whirl’ comes from the new Novelty Island EP Welcome To Novelty Island which takes in the art pop that Field Music do so well, Neil Finn’s bottomless well of melodicism, plus some dreamy electronica.
