The voice of God spillin’ out of my mouth

Only Will Currie (second left) was in on the joke
Novels will probably get labeled as a supergroup, although the band’s members are hardly megastars. A collaboration between Graham Wright (Tokyo Police Club), Luke Lalonde (Born Ruffians), Will Currie (Will Currie and the Country French), Dean Marino (EX~PO) and Jason Sadlowski (Jay Sad), each songwriter contributed one track to the group’s self-titled EP, which is available now as a free download from their website.

“No Hard Feelings” is fronted by Graham Wright, and it covers similar stylistic territory to his folksy solo recordings. A saloon piano plunks along as Wright sings a wistfully nostalgic tribute to a friend who’s moving away. The song’s characters appear to be school friends, but it’s also possible that it’s a divorced father addressing his daughter, singing, “Say hello to the boys you kiss / When you turn sixteen / Show ‘em what you’re made of, kid / And give ‘em hell for me.”
