Capping off what has been a momentous year for Nova Twins, the heavy alt-rock renegades have released a huge remix of Sam Smiths’ global sensation “Unholy”. Already a chart-topping smash,  the duo embarked on their first-ever remix, giving the original the Nova treatment and what a head-banging belter it is! 

When asked about how they approached this track, Amy & Georgia commented,  “When we heard ‘Unholy’ we thought it’s such a banger we have to remix it! It’s a dark, sexy tune, reminiscent of the noughties R&B sound that we all know and love. The beat and percussion on the original is so killer, it drives the track and was asking for some big riffs and screams Nova style!

The band have just announced a very special, intimate show at The Lexington in London, happening on 8th February 20203 with Music Venue Trust and FreeNow, in support of grassroots venues, on which Amy & Georgia said, “We started in these grassroots venues. Without them, it will be a huge loss to the UK music scene. It’s an ecosystem.  If you take one thing away the rest collapses. If you suddenly pull grassroots venues then that’s fewer artists that people are going to discover, fewer ticket sales, and less revenues. It affects everything.”

Tickets to this one-off, intimate event are ON-SALE NOW

Nova Twins are the zeitgeist-capturing polymath pioneers that our times have been waiting for. Whether being the first black rock band to be shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, pushing the MOBO Awards to create a category for POC alt. acts, working with Dr. Martens to raise money for The Black Curriculum, teaming up with No Music On A Dead Planet and Oxfam to play for environmental change, Amy Love and Georgia South are much more than one of the UK’s most exciting bands – they are changemakers. 

The all-conquering year Nova Twins have enjoyed in 2022 only proves that. Their explosive second album “Supernova” landed in the summer and took fans and critics by storm. “Supernova” was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize, which saw them stand alongside a diverse range of bands like Little Simz, Wet Leg, Self-Esteem and Kojey Radical. The Guardian named “Supernova” as their Album Of The Week – one that’s “inventive, angry, witty, original and pretty irresistible”. NME agreed with a five-star review of the record marking them as “a vital new voice in the world of rock,” while Consequence Of Sound also heaped praise upon “Supernova” as “a homage not only to the Black women who’ve come before them but to the activated rockers and fighters who have preceded them as well”.

Long may that spirit reign. As part of their ongoing victory lap and following 104 gigs across 22 countries in 2022, the duo will start the new year with a rock cruise around the Bahamas, before the UK and European ‘Supernova’ tour continues in February, leading into a season of “festivals galore”. In and around all that, they’ll begin work on album number three. Not even they know what to expect, but that’s the beauty of Nova Twins.

“We’re not a band to overthink things,” says Love. “When you put a lot of pressure on yourself or plan things too much, you don’t get what’s naturally going to come to you. Whatever feels right in the moment, that’s what we’ll do.”

And this moment is theirs. There’s no band out there quite like Nova Twins. If more artists blazed a trail like this, we’d be celebrating a lot more difference, rather than craving what’s safe and similar. From being “shunned” when they arrived on the scene, now Nova Twins are leading a game all of their own. Now, there are no rules.
