The multi talented DJ, vocalist and songwriter Christina Novelli is cranking out hit after hit this year. She has worked with most of the high tier artists in her field and managed to add some more to that already impressive list with her stunning 4 track EP I’m Not Sad. For this highly anticipated EP she asked fellow female artists Reigns, Sarah de Warren, Bo Bruce and Linney to lend her their voices.
With tags like “Leaving Me”, “Beautiful Lies” and “Fallen Ones”, you’d be forgiven for thinking the course of true love wasn’t running smooth for Novelli. However, it’s not the headlines that count here but the between-the-lines implications of her songs. With a finely crafted subtlety, she goes beyond their titles to tell matters-of-the-heart tales infinitely more nuanced.
With the final action of her second 2023 EP, she clarifies those complexities: I’m Not Sad truly says it all.
While the EP’s tracks had subtext, their overarching theme couldn’t be clearer and more original. Their all-female, all-duet composition is something all but unheard of within electronic music. After recent songwriting link-ups with Sarah de Warren, Bo Bruce and Linney, she wraps that run up with a Reigns teaming.
Having already lent voice to Carl Cox, Benny Benassi, Low Steppa and Disco Fries’ productions, UK vocalist Reigns comes to “When My Angel Sleeps” with plenty of shared credit pedigree. This however is the first time she’s co-owned mic-&-song with another singer.
Chiming with I’m Not Sad’s emphatic statement, “When My Angel Sleeps” is a masterstroke of emotional elevation. With its irresistible, irrepressible riff detectable sharing some musical DNA with another of Christina’s “Angels”, it’s a masterful last flourish to Novelli’s most accomplished EP to date. I’m Not Sad is out now on all streaming platforms though Blackhole Recordings.
