The best kept secret in music


"A Novel Form Gets Indie Rock Right"

" Heres a pretty piece of indie rock. First there's intense lyrics and surreal falsetto harmonies. Dead Reckoning is probably the most impressive bit of vocal layering on the album. The net effect is fluttering sonic waves that leave you feeling lovesick and prone to day dreaming."
- J. Adrian Stanley THE GAZETTE

"Gets better with every listen(5 stars)"

"After hearing these songs, it amazes me that these guys are so young. The talent here is truly amazing. In a world where some bands can get apparently a records deal on a whim, it's a shame that talented bands like this don't get more attention. Download this- you wont regret it."

"A Novel Form provides a nice, mellow break from the city's screamy "core" scene on pictures. With layered vocals, superb guitar riffs and harmonizing on every track, the five-song EP is even and well-done. Four tracks risk sounding similar, but the last song, "Dead Reckoning," is the exception, with guest vocals by Summer Justice. It's light and piano- driven, with aesthetically pleasing LP crackles in the production. An uncharacteristic drumbeat breakaway makes the song, and the album, far more interesting. Overall, a small snippet of great things to come."
- Kara Luger

"Pictures E.P"

"This is one of the best records I have listened to in quite sometime. The songs were so melodic, you just can't help but be enchanted by this cd. I really enjoyed the last track, Dead Reckoning, for the beautiful harmonies that it entails." - Keith- CD BABY

A Novel Form Bio         

    With most of today’s rock music dissolving into an undifferentiated signal of heavy distortion and tired pop formulas, it takes something unusual to inspire music fans. When something original comes along, it’s sure to get noticed. That’s why the word has been spreading about A Novel Form’s unique sound.
            Since the band’s inception in February 2005, its members have set out to create meaningful, quality music with real emotion behind it. Refusing to settle for the ordinary, the foursome developed a new style characterized by tight, intricate melodies, pretty vocals, and unusual rhythms.
            It didn’t take long for people to take notice. Their frequent shows have quickly made them local heroes, and online fans from across the country as well as Europe and Japan have begged them to come play their cities. The band has captured the interest of several national acts including Thursday, The Honorary Title, The Format, and Kind of Like Spitting.
            In December 2005, A Novel Form celebrated the release of its anticipated debut EP, Pictures. After months of careful scrutinizing in the studio, the band delivered the album into the hands of excited fans and reviewers. J. Adrian Stanley of The Gazette described its net effect as “fluttering sonic waves that leave you feeling lovesick and prone to daydreaming.” In February, the album was already getting heavy play on college radio stations throughout America. In the words of reviewer Kara Luger, Pictures is “a small snippet of great things to come.”
            Currently, A Novel Form is in the process of planning tours in support of Pictures and New Material. In the meantime, they will continue to write new music and play shows. Listen in and find out what all the buzz is about.
