Novel - Pretty Scars

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Novel & Justin Kahler
Album:

If there’s one thing Novel‘s music has taught us, it’s that a beautiful exterior can hide tremendous pain; many of the ATL Renaissance artist’s most acclaimed features have seen him dressing ugly emotions up in dazzling arrangements and soulful vocal performances. On new single Pretty Scars, the artist brings that message into the foreground, telling the story of a woman whose flawless fa├žade belies a troubled mind. Novel and Justin Kahler double up behind the boards, creating a moody arpeggiated-synth backdrop for the artist’s poignant sung and rapped bars. Angie Romansanta directs the joint’s official visual accompaniment, starring April Clark. This record is part of Novel’s Under Water, Overwhelmed EP, released last fall via The DJBooth and available now for free streaming/download.
