Just days after being in the spotlight at the Brit Awards where they were nominated in two categories, the trailblazing Nova Twins will be in Norwich this week with their brand of heavy alt-rock.
The Supernova EU Tour 2023 will arrive at The Waterfront on Friday, February 17, with the duo of singer and guitarist Amy Love and bassist Georgia South one of the hottest properties on the circuit at the moment.
Their second album, Supernova, was released last year to critical acclaim, with NME declaring the Twins as “a vital new voice in the world of rock”.
Talking about Supernova, Love said: “When we were making the album, we just hoped that people would love what we loved about it.
“We hold this album quite close to our hearts, and it did what we wanted it to do and more.”
Although they were ultimately pipped at the post for best group by Wet Leg and by The 1975 for best alternative/rock artist, their appearance at the Brits was just the latest achievement the London pair have made.
They were the driving force behind the Mobo Awards creating a category for people-of-colour alt acts, and they were the first black rock band to be shortlisted for the Mercury Prize. Their cheerleaders include Tom Morello.
“People just assume that women who dress colourfully can’t play,” said South.
“We want to change that – for everyone. We want to change the way that people look at heavy music.”
