In the ever-evolving tapestry of modern pop, Novelty Island stands out as the brainchild of Liverpool's Tom McConnell, a master of surreal, cut-up pop artistry. His music blossomed on London's live scene in early 2020 with the vibrant Welcome To Novelty Island... EP. The pandemic's curveball saw McConnell retreat to his Mersey-side abode, where he conjured up a whimsical world of papier-mâché, Instagram artistry, and dreamy music videos, culminating in the critically acclaimed one-man band debut, How Are You Coping With This Century? With a soaring reputation bolstered by supporting The Pale White and China Crisis and gracing Glastonbury, Novelty Island's Wallsend Weekend Television, released early 2023, continued their streak of rave reviews. Now, in 2024, they're captivating the road, reaffirming their status as an audacious and innovative presence in the contemporary music landscape.
