Who Are The Girls? Nova Twins Deliver Distorted Mayhem At The O2

Supporting Muse on the last run of UK Arena shows of their Will Of People Tour, London-based Nova Twins took to the stage and wowed the steadily filling O2 Arena.

The duo of vocalist/guitarist Amy Love and bassist Georgia South are fast becoming one of the most talked about rock groups of the 2020s. Despite being ignored when they started in 2014, the music industry ultimately wanted to put them into a more pop friendly genre. However, 2022 was a standout year for them. Their second album Supernova was critically acclaimed, reached number 2 on the UK independent Albums chart, was nominated for the Mercury Prize and the band themselves were nominated for two Brit Awards and won Best British Breakthrough at the Kerrang! Awards.

They took their opportunity tonight to play their trademark energetic, loud rock. Their 45 minute, 10-song set containing eight tracks from their 2022 Sophomore record, including singles Antagonist, Puzzles and Choose Your Fighter readied the crowd for what was going to be a night full of tremendous passion and energy. Cleopatra is a proud anthem for anyone from black or ethnic minority backgrounds. Born out of the hope that the Black Lives Matter movement gave to them in 2020, South is of Jamaican and Australian descent and Love, who herself is from Iranian and Nigerian descent, screams out the powerful chorus. K.M.B (Kill My Boyfriend) has a light-hearted vengeful track about proudly shaming fake hard men. 

They drew a huge crowd at Download Festival earlier in the summer, and even joined Bring Me The Horizon at their headline slot to perform their 2020 collaboration 1×1. Their futuristic distorted rock is a force to be reckoned with and it’s exciting to see what’s next for this young band.
