Novo Amor and Ed Tullett first crossed paths in November 2013, at the Newport date of Ed’s UK tour. After showing an immediate appreciation for each other’s work, Ed, based in Brighton, spent December at Novo Amor (Ali Lacey)’s Cardiff home-studio, writing a record’s worth of material.
Recorded in March and self-produced by the pair in Cardiff, ‘Faux’ is the first realization of their collaborative talent, a swirling combination of their stunning falsettos, giant acoustic swells, and cryptic lyrics. The single, to be released via Norway-based label Brilliance Records, and Dumont Dumont, home to RY X, is an addictive alternative-folk behemoth.
Ed Tullett is currently putting final touches to his new record, ‘Fiancé’, a dark, electronic departure to his early acoustic work, after having remixes of Bon Iver (released on Spotify on the Bon Iver Stems Project album) and Local Natives shared by the bands themselves.
Novo Amor’s ‘Woodgate, NY’ EP was released in March via Brilliance to rave reviews (6/6 – GAFFA, 8/10 – The 405), after premiering on The Line Of Best Fit.
Their collaboration is the start of something bigger, as they prepare to write further and look to crafting a full record later in the year.
Brilliance Records is a small indie label out of Bergen, Norway. The label’s focus is to discover and present new brilliant music.
Dumont Dumont is a label based in Stockholm, Sweden. Australian artist RY X was the first artist to be released on the label.
