Album Review Nova Twins - Who Are The Girls?

It’s hard not to commend Nova Girls for the gripping collision of influences that make up their debut.

Nova Twins - Who Are The Girls?

Amy Love and Georgia South have opted for a full-throttle attack on debut, ‘Who Are The Girls?’, turning their wrath on gender inequality, sexual harassment, and their audience’s listening capabilities. Opener ‘Vortex’ is a jolting combination of effects and pedals, jumping from spoken-word verses to shattering screams. ‘Play Fair’ and ‘Bullet’ are other highlights, showcasing a ferocity and vocal capability not unlike Press Club’s Natalie Foster. There are moments, such as on ‘Taxi’, where the duo get overzealous with the effects - the subdued ‘Ivory Tower’ suggests they’re better off avoiding similar forays moving forward. Still, it’s hard not to commend Nova Girls for the gripping collision of influences that make up their debut, and their commitment to doing it so forcefully.
