“Pablo Nouvelle brings soul back to the future” – The Guardian
“Nouvelle serves up yet another sumptuously smooth tune that’s like Swiss chocolate for your ears.” – Wonderland Magazine
“(Finding You) showcases James’ classy vocals against Nouvelle’s smart and dexterous production” – The Line of Best Fit
“A perfect blend of electronic and soul music, full of emotion, warmth and life.” – Complex UK
“the electronic talent matches superb songwriting to flickering electronics and an awareness of low-end abstraction. – CLASH
Speaking on the release, Nouvelle says “The simplicity of composing pieces using only the piano has something honest to it. I wanted to draw a drastic contrast to this short-living world, drowning in hate and plastic. My journey to Zaouiat Ahansal – a hidden village in a remote valley in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and only accessible by foot or mule – inspired the idea of this plain tranquility.”
With ‘Piano Pieces’ penned for the 25th January 2019, the new year will also see the release of Pablo’s award-winning short animation – ‘In A Nutshell’ – as Vimeo’s staff pick on 2nd January.
