If there’s one mistake we’ve made here on All Things Go it’s not devoting nearly enough attention to The Novel Ideas. The Boston country outfit’s debut album, Home, was one of our favorite releases of 2012 and left us hungry for more of their pop-tinged folk music. So naturally we are very excited to be premiering a brand new track from the band — “Lost On The Road” — on ATG today.
“Lost On The Road” marks a stronger devotion to Americana than their previous efforts. But while there is very little that is “pop” about this song, it still feels remarkably accessible. Sarah Grella’s vocals shine from the get-go over instrumentals that bring to mind sunny days in the American countryside. Fans of Lord Huron should take note — these guys will become your new favorite band before you know it. Stream “Lost On The Road” below.
Those of you in the Washington area can catch The Novel Ideas at Clementine in Harrisonburg, VA on June 6th and at Hill Country in DC on July 8th.
