  • Album: Untitled EP

In radio, TV and music industry parlance, a “talkback.” is a system that allows people in the control room to speak to those in the studio through headphones. What does that have to with novellus.'s latest single? Not much, aside from the song featuring some slightly creepy robotic chattering. But it's an interesting factoid, n'est-ce pas? Coming on the heels of December's reader-approved Reign, this cut is described on PAPER (where it premiered) as an ideal “winter sex soundtrack," and the label fits. From the mysterious alt-R&B buzzmaker's falsetto-laced vocals to the throbbing synth-bassline running through his beat, every aspect of this song exudes a chilly, yet alluring vibe. novellus's debut EP, Untitled, is slated to drop January 26, via New Ancestors. In the meantime, of course, you can keep it locked for more fresh singles.
