Nova Twins Premiere New Song “Puzzles”

Nova Twins have premiered a new song titled “Puzzles.” This track is from the band’s new album “Supernova,” which will be released on June 17. The group commented:

“Inspired by the many sexy R&B songs we love, we wanted to make a heavy rocked-out version of a song that makes us feel powerful. It’s always been fine for men to vocalise liking sex, so why can’t the same rules apply to us? We’re women, we should be free to explore what we like in our songwriting! A general Nova Twins theme is that we’re always in control. When it comes to a track like this, we were always going to show our domineering side.”

Nova Twins Premiere New Song “Cleopatra”

Nova Twins have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Cleopatra.” This track is from the band’s new album “Supernova,” which will be released on June 17. Guitarist/vocalist Amy Love commented:

“‘Cleopatra’ was written off the back of the Black Lives Matter protests. Attending them made us feel powerful as two mixed-race women in an era where people were suddenly waking up to Anti Racists conversations. It’s about celebrating who we are and being proud of where we come from. We hope this song encourages people from all walks of life to act and feel the same way too.”

Nova Twins Premiere “K.M.B.” Music Video

Nova Twins have premiered a new video for their new song “K.M.B.” This track is from the band’s new album “Supernova,” which will be released on June 17.

The band said the following about the new song:

“’K.M.B.’ will stitch-up the hearts of the heartbroken, teaching the ones who broke it a lesson. Inspired by the sound and feel of the 90’s, we wrote and filmed our version of a playful horror movie. Think ‘Mean Girls’ meets ‘Clueless’ meets ‘Pulp Fiction.’ Somewhere between those storylines is where you will find ‘K.M.B.’”

They also added the following about the album:

“’Supernova’ is the beginning of a new era. As we delved into the unknown, making this album became our medicine through a turbulent time. It’s a reflection of where we were and how far we have come, encased in a fantasy world that we imagined. ‘Supernova’ is made out of dreams, triumphs and colorful nightmares. When you get to the other side, you will always come out a winner.”

01. “Power (Intro)”
