Discovery: White Novels

White Novels are a Glasgow, Scotland-based alternative rock band who have already been hailed by the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders. Yet, they’ve only just hit our radar, thanks to their latest track Circles.

By Graeme Smith

Circles is a song about growing up, mental health, relationships and alcoholism. It’s a story delicately told through singer songwriter Jack Bestow’s haunting vocals, and a soft rock arrangement reminiscent of the likes of Keane and Travis. We get a rousing chorus with maximum catharsis.

Jack got his break when appearing at a charity show alongside The Snuts, Lewis Capaldi, and Retro Video Club. The world is sitting up and taking notice, with good reason. Circles is a belter. You can check it out below.
