NOVA TWINS
Who Are The Girls?
333 WRECKORDS CREW

With the bite of Ecca Vandal, the energy of WAAX and the grit of DZ Deathrays, we admittedly thought the Nova Twins were Aussies at first. We’re bummed to learn they aren’t, because we’d do anything to catch the cuts on this rip-roaring debut – raw, spry and intense – in the flesh right now. 

Fans of our local punk output will adore this punchy and impassioned set of devilish dance-punk, from the speaker-throttling “Bullet” and mosh-ready “Play Fair” to the outright hypnotising “Ivory Tower”. Equally as poignant as the barbed vocal quips that Amy Love and Georgia South trade is the former’s fretwork, grungy and punchy and almost dubstep-esque, each riff belted out with more energy than most hardcore bands could muster. 

It’s hard not to envision a huge future ahead for these up-and-coming rippers.

Ellie Robinson
Editor-at-Large, Australian Guitar Magazine

Ellie Robinson is an Australian writer, editor and dog enthusiast with a keen ear for pop-rock and a keen tongue for actual Pop Rocks.

Her go-to guitar is a Fender Player Tele, which, controversially, she only picked up after she'd joined the team at Australian Guitar. Before then, Ellie was a keyboardist – thankfully, the AG crew helped her see the light…
