I have been looking forward to writing about a track like Nots’ ‘No Novelty’ a while. The no nonsense grrrl power snarl of the vocals have a charm which is missing from what’s left of guitar music. The guitars are simple, aggressive and punky to the core. However, as the title suggests, this song is no novelty. In fact, the bubbling effects give the song a quirky, modern depth. If ‘No Novelty’ is anything to go by, Nots’ new LP ‘Cosmetic’ will be a gem.
