Vancouver group N0V3L released a great mini-album in 2019, which was closely followed by a split with EXEK from Melbourne. They’ve managed to stay the tide and are now ready to unleash their full-length debut, arriving on Meat Machine in May. Non-Fiction consists of material written from as far back as 2017 to last year, when their practice space and headquarter was torn down. They worked with Bryce Cloghesy who has also recorded Crack Cloud, and judging by the first single “Group Disease” the sound is veering away from angular post-punk inspired by Josef K and Fire Engines to something more groove-based. If anything, it reminds me of the loose cacophony of The Lines or the liquidity of A Certain Ratio.
