Novo Amor - real name Ali Lacey - seems to be drawn to extremity.
In terms of emotion, the songwriter's work is weighed down by melancholy, by a sense of loss. Yet it's more than this: Novo Amor is based in Wales, wrote his new EP in the Lake District and is signed to a Norwegian label.
Clearly, life away from the city is in his blood. New EP 'Woodgate, NY' drops on March 31st, containing four tracks of soft and quite striking songwriting.
A quick quote: "I’m really excited to be sharing this new record with the world. These songs are very personal to me, musically and lyrically. I feel this is a major progression from the first EP ‘Drift’… I am very happy to be releasing my latest work with Brilliance Records."
Ahead of this, Clash is able to premiere the video for 'Holland'. Shot by Josh Bennett, it finds Novo Amor by the shore with storm waves crashing in over grey stone.
Beautifully shot, you can watch it now.
