Tele Novella today offer us another taste of their new album House of Souls (out this Friday). Baeble premiered "Even Steven" today and noted "This Austin-based band is quirky, edgy, and they don't take themselves too seriously -- with clever and fun lyrics like "If you get a hand you shouldn't bite it / If you get a cigarette you'll need to light it / Give a mouse a cookie, it'll ask for milk." Front woman Natalie Ribbons acts out every word with her voice, making it fun and adding a slight growl under her breath. Because of course, how could she possibly deal with this moocher without growlin' a little bit?"

Of the track, Natalie Ribbons of Tele Novella noted, "Everybody knows at least one Even Steven. The kind of person that keeps track of time and money, but always in their favor. This is our vampy, passive aggressive, Quentin Tarantino-style roasting of all those assholes in one surfy, R&B sitting."




NPR All Songs Considered first premiered "Heavy Balloon" and noted, "Inspired by the classic Velvet Underground song "Caroline Says," this track by the Austin-based band Tele Novella is going to make you so happy.Lenny Letter went on to premiere the video for the track which stars Lorelei Linklater of Boyhood. They wrote, "Tele Novella have a bittersweet sound, satisfyingly reminiscent of 1960s girl groups and crestfallen twee. Awash in tambourine and harmonies, their songs reveal the drama of figuring out what it means to be alive." Watch it above.
