Novel - Self Medicating

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Justin Kahler
Album:

Novel‘s not addicted to drugs; he’s just Self Medicating for a broken heart. Last featured with early August’s unreleased Should You Stay, the multitalented reader fave strikes a more melancholy chord on the inaugural song release off his forthcoming EP (a Booth-exclusive world premiere!). Novel’s always had a knack for exuding raw, timeless emotion over modern beats, and here he outdoes himself, lacing project collaborator’s Justin Kahler‘s chilly synth soundscape with poignant snapshots of a breakup’s psychological fallout: “Puffin’ lye on a Saturday night, think I’m losin’ my religion / The next morning I’m hung over at the Sunday Service quotin’ scriptures.Self Medicating is just one of many eclectic, soulful selections to be found on the freestyle series alum‘s Under Water, Over Whelmed EP, set to drop digitally in the near future. In the meantime, fans can still cop March’s Red Wine & Ambien street album for free in The DJBooth.
