South East London duo, Amy Love and Georgia South - aka Nova Twins - have just released new single ‘Lose Your Head’. Intended as a rejection of off-the-peg opinions and an invitation to walk your own path, the pair want to open people’s minds and invite them to the wild side. We spoke to Amy and Georgia about their music.
It’s a rejection of judgmental opinions and a celebration of uniqueness and all of our differences!
First up, tell us bit about yourselves - what led you to forming Nova Twins?
Georgia - We’ve been friends as close as sisters for years and years, we have both always been musicians so one day we decided to write a song together called ‘Bad Bitches’ and the rest is history.. ! We loved the tune and how we worked together so we just have a laugh travelling the world together making crazy tunes!
Who do you take your inspiration from?
Amy - Usually true stories that have happened to us but sometimes it’s fictional, sometimes the concept can start from a great movie or an old tale. It really depends on our mood and whats happening in our lives at the time. The prospects are endless, that’s the fun part.
How would you describe your musical style?
Georgia - Big bass, big vocals, genre bending into the abyss of raucous sounds!
Why the name, Nova Twins?
Amy - Nova as in a super Nova (very explosive lol) and Twins because of how in-sync we are in literally everything… it’s weird!
What do fans get at your live shows?
Georgia - Tonnes of energy, sweat, riffs, unity and a safe place for everyone from all backgrounds to rock out and let off steam!
Your latest single is ‘Lose Your Head’. What’s it about?
Amy - It’s a rejection of judgmental opinions and a celebration of uniqueness and all of our differences!
When did you write it and where did you record it?
Georgia - We wrote it early this year and recorded in Hastings with Kevin Vanbergen. It was super fun working with him recording the most gnarly of sounds… He even had a studio puppy!
What are your hopes for ‘Lose Your Head’?
Amy - We self released it for the people who are into Nova Twins, we hope they freak out to it as much as we do!
Where can we see you live next?
You can catch us in London headlining The Lexington on Saturday, August 18th! Also we’re playing AfroPunk Brooklyn in New York on Sunday, August 26th! So excited!
Finally, if you could wish for one thing to happen for Nova Twins this year, what would it be?
Amy - To end up with a well made album we are proud of!
