Novelty Daughter – “Day Of Inner Fervor” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Novelty Daughter is the project of Brooklyn-based musician Faith Harding — she released her self-titled debut EP back in 2013, plus a few one-offs since then. (One of her earliest songs, “American Dreams,” was my jam a while back, and I played it non-stop for a few months straight.) Harding will release her debut album, Semigoddess, next year, and today she’s sharing the lead single from it, “Day Of Inner Fervor,” with a Dennis Moran-directed video that captures all the weirdness and wonder that is her take on pop. With a hypnotic backbeat and that soaring, mesmerizing voice of hers, the track feels like a welcome fever dream, incorporating disco and jazz and a free-flowing sense of time to craft a wholly unique experience. Listen and watch below.

Novelty Daughter’s debut album, Semigoddess, is out 3/25 via Stereocure. Pre-order it on iTunes here.
