Chapter 3 - Big Run
Written by Luke Lalonde
Luke Lalonde brings the most complex yet most satisfying song to the project with ‘Big Run’. Hand claps, tambourine, vibes and triangle overdubs round out the song. Luke struggles with the vocals, but eventually gets the job done. Everybody cheers.
NOVELS The Movie takes you inside a 24 hour marathon recording session at Chemical Sound with five of Canada’s top young pop musicians. Tokyo Police Club's Graham Wright, Will Currie of Will Currie and The Country French, and Luke Lalonde of Born Ruffians team up with Dean Marino of Tin Star Orphans and Jason Sadlowski of Chemical Sound to write, collaborate and record a 5 song EP in one day.
Heavily influenced by Wilco: I Am Trying To Break Your Heart and 6015 Willow, filmmaker Wade Vroom takes you through this unique creative process. Watch and listen as each musicians’ song evolves from an acoustic pitch to the other NOVELS members, into a fully realized collaborative recording.
