Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Novo Amor

Monday, October 15, 2018

Before Novo Amor enthrals you with his highly anticipated debut album Birthplace this Friday 19th October, check out some of the tunes that hold a special place in his heart.

What song did you last listen to?
'Birthday' by Gia Margaret.

What song would you love to sample?
Not something I’ve ever thought about. 'Happy Birthday to you?' Maybe some drone music by Tim Hecker or a drum fill from a Phil Collins or Bruce Hornsby track. Cleary, I don’t know.

What song is your ultimate party track?
'September' by Earth, Wind & Fire.

What song reminds you of your last holiday?
Anything Fado. I went to Lisbon and heard a lot of Fado Music.

What song makes you feel motivated?
'I Want You Back' by The Jackson 5. I used to put it on every morning when I was living in a cold apartment working early mornings in a café.

What song has been your favourite track of 2018?
Either ‘Birthday' by Gia Margaret or ‘Funeral' by Phoebe Bridgers’
