Erika Wester’s “Novelty” *feels like* the work of Mazzy Star but emblazoned with attitude and a rough edge to it.

The soothing vocals have the potential to lead you into a daydream thanks to it’s pensive delivery and romantic lyricism. As gorgeous as the songwriting is, when we dive deeper the audience can also feel the cold sting of the unrequited love we’re welcomed too. I can’t neglect to mention the fierce guitars that erupt in the chorus, thus providing the track with that rough edge mentioned before.
