Nova Twins have told NME about what to expect from their new album ‘Supernova’, describing it as “a journey of lockdown and coming out the other end a winner”.

The pair performed with Bring Me The Horizon and presented BERWYN with the Best New Act From The UK Supported by the Music Venue Trust award at the BandLab NME Awards 2022 in London last night (March 2). They were also nominated for Best Band In The World.

Ahead of the ceremony, the duo talked to NME on the red carpet at the O2 Academy Brixton and looked ahead to the release of their second album, which is due out on June 17.

Asked how the album pushes their sound forward, guitarist and vocalist Amy Love said it does so “in a lot of emotional, moody ways”.

“It’s dark, but it’s also quite sinister. But also fun,” she added. “It’s a journey of lockdown and coming out the other end a winner. We’re really excited.”
