Rock duo Nova Twins go full assassin on lethal thriller ‘Hit Girl’

Punk rock­ers Nova Twins are break­ing stereo­types and shoot­ing to thill with their new 10-tonne banger ‘Hit Girl’. And their aim is dead on.

Start­ing with a threat­en­ing bass lick, Amy Love and Geor­gia South unleash a lethal com­bo of skull-crack­ing rock, slick rhymes and raw fire.

“For us, the song is a metaphor for tak­ing down people’s per­cep­tions of what women and men of colour, and peo­ple in minor­i­ty groups in the music indus­try, should look and sound like,” bass play­er South told Fringe Fre­quen­cy.

“We don’t belong to one genre, like hip hop and R&B. We can play what­ev­er we want. Our goal is to inspire tomorrow’s war­riors so they don’t feel alien­at­ed in cer­tain parts of the industry.”

The south Lon­don duo are per­fect­ing the art of badass-ery, one song at a time. With ‘Hit Girl’, vocal­ist and gui­tarist Love said they want peo­ple to feel part of something.

“We have such a beau­ti­ful diverse audi­ence, and it’s so amaz­ing see­ing dif­fer­ent types of peo­ple get­ting togeth­er, enjoy­ing the same thing,” Love said.

“Some peo­ple think the music is angry, and at time it sure is, but it’s more like ther­a­py. We want peo­ple to let go and feel lib­er­at­ed, shar­ing the same energy!”

Watch the video for ‘Hit Girl’ below and feel the sur­gi­cal strike of these girls in action.

We’ve been in awe of their nat­ur­al affin­i­ty for mak­ing white-hot stun­ners in the vein of Rage Against the Machine for some time, and Nova Twins’s lat­est has us hooked. ‘Hit Girl’ feels like The Bride from Kill Bill, Bey­on­cé in her ‘Six Inch Heels’ and The Lady of Rage combined.

The video was direct­ed by Nova Twins and filmed by Marie South (Georgia’s moth­er) and Sanaa Abstrakt.

Speak­ing about the video, South told us: “We want­ed to have this video super sim­ple and to the point. The song is pret­ty direct so we want­ed a straight­for­ward con­cept of us set up play­ing how we do live. We realised we’d nev­er done that before so it was fun just rock­ing out like how we do at a gig.

“We had a sick time mak­ing the jack­ets for the video, too. We feel so lib­er­at­ed and pow­er­ful in our suits – like we just stepped off the set of The God­fa­ther or some­thing, aha.”

Nova Twins have released two well-received EPs, titled Nova Twins and Mood Swings, so far. They told us they are cur­rent­ly focus­ing on mak­ing more new music and are think­ing of releas­ing a third EP.

‘Hit Girl’ is avail­able to down­load and stream now.

Nova Twins play The Vic­to­ria, Dal­ston, Lon­don, on May 24.
