Watch Nova Twins unleash a vortex in The K! Pit
Following on from Salem’s goth-punk party last Tuesday, this week’s instalment of the K! Pit in association with Nordic Spirit is something much more rowdy, courtesy of London rap-rock crossover duo Nova Twins
Amy Love and Georgina South took to our favourite London dive bar of Blondies to unleash a veritable sonicboom of stomping punk, industrialised rave and hard-hitting lyricism of the course of 30 minutes. Adhering all necessary governmental COVID measures, no fans were in attendance, with vocalist Amy singing directly into camera.
“It was surreal,” says Georgia of the experience. “It actually felt like it was the first gig we’ve played all year, but having you guys there felt like having a little audience. It felt really good.”
“At first I was a bit nervous because you feel out of touch because everyone’s been doing stuff in the studio or at home, when you’re not really going for it,” adds Amy.
“Yeah, it was a little bit like going from zero to a hundred in one go, which was a head spin. But it felt really good,” says Georgia.
Dropping their debut album Who Are The Girls? earlier this year on Jason Aalon Butler’s 333 Wreckords label, the seven song set leant heavily on their newer material that is yet to receive a proper outing on tour.
