The Novel Ideas is a country/folk quintet of friends from Massachusetts. The band has earned a reputation from critics and fans for its moving four-part harmonies and rich Americana sound.
“When we finally got the four-part harmony down, it was this moment where we realized that this wasn’t just an element of our music—it was a feature,” said guitarist and vocalist Daniel Radin. From rock clubs to living rooms to festival stages, the band strives to convey honesty and intimacy through its music.
Featuring the voices of three songwriters, the group’s upcoming self-titled album reveals the band at its best. Capturing the spirit of its live performance in recorded form wasn’t easy, but the result is a heartfelt representation of the band. Track by track, The Novel Ideas represents a contribution to the country/folk scene that balances love-and-loss melancholy with thoughtful instrumentation and intricate vocal arrangements.
