New Waves 2018: Nova Twins

From their aes­thet­ic to their sound, every­thing about Nova Twins screams: atti­tude. Amy Love and Geor­gia South embody the DIY spir­it that start­ed punk rock and hip hop with their cus­tom-made, thrift shop clothes and their aggres­sive wall of noise.

On record, these “Queens of the Damned” lay down smat­ter­ings of punchy rock and rap that gets puls­es rac­ing. Think: Deap Val­ly meets Sav­ages meets Rage Against the Machine.

The Lon­don duo have two EPs out – Nova Twins and the recent­ly released Mood Swings – and songs ‘Bassline Bitch’ and ‘Thel­ma and Louise’ are ris­ing favourites. They’ve put on dyna­mite per­for­mances at Afrop­unk fes­ti­vals (seri­ous­ly, they had us in shock), have begun to per­form head­line shows, and now they’re real­ly start­ing to take off. No word yet on what’s planned for 2018, but we’re con­fi­dent these girls are about to go supernova.
