The cinematic stylings of Reno-based indie band The Novelists have finally found their way to video form with the release of the new single "Morris & Estelle" and its corresponding video premiering today

"Morris & Estelle" is, at its core, the root of the band. A true story about an elderly couple who chose to deal with terminal illness in an extraordinary fashion, the couple's decision was so powerful that it became the inspiration for the storytelling aspect of the music and is what bonded the members and first inspired them to sit down and seriously consider writing. As their first song, it was only fitting that it would also become their debut music video. LA director, Nicholas Lam (Bastille, Jason Derulo, Kylie Minogue), captured both the beauty and the astonishment of the tale with such sensitivity as to leave the viewer longing for a love as profound as Morris and Estelle’s.
