‘Thoughts Of The Fish Quay’ is reminiscent of The Beatles, the catchy melodies fill the sonic landscape and captivates the audience. Finally, the title track, ‘Suddenly On Sea’ closes the EP in Novelty Island’s unique style and leave the listener wanting more.
McConnell says about the EP release, “Suddenly On Sea is a little escape I wrote while feeling the chaos of London, a Northern seaside-town away from all things hectic. It then morphed into a little game of imaginary town names based on people and places in my head.”
McConnell also creates all his artwork, and his videos are made with an iPhone and iMovie to support his releases. He is a multi-talented artist who is destined for greatness!
Released on Abbey House Records, ‘Suddenly On Sea’ is a wonderful introduction to Novelty Island. It is also the follow up to the previous release ‘Welcome To Novelty Island’, which we can’t wait to listen to.
Novelty Island is an artist who is making innovative pop music, and we very much look forward to hearing what will come next. Until then, check out ‘Suddenly On Sea’ from the link below.
