London duo Nova Twins have signed to 333 Wreckords Crew, the label founded by the Fever 333's frontman Jason Aalon Butler, which will release the band's debut album, Who Are The Girls?, on February 28th. Specializing in a bass-heavy, grimy brand of hip-hop-infused punk rock, Nova Twins cite influences as diverse as N.E.R.D., the Prodigy, Betty Davis, Missy Elliott and New York Dolls, and — much like their label honcho — they use their platform to champion inclusivity and diversity. Check out their songs "Devil's Face" and "Vortex," and their respective music videos, below.
"The whole idea of the 333 Wreckords Crew is to offer a creative alternative to the banal structure of the music industry as well as supporting and propagating art that challenges," Butler commented. "Nova Twins are literally the embodiment of this idea. Two black women in rock music twisting the convention of a genre whose only chance of survival is to evolve. Nova Twins are that evolution. Nova Twins are the future. They are so damn important to this music and to the culture and I'm gonna make sure people see that. I couldn't be more proud to announce them as the newest addition of creatives to the crew."
"Who Are The Girls? is dedicated to all the people who are beautifully diverse and creating their own lanes. It's a celebration of those who feel like they don't fit in! The title is ironic, as there is little representation of diversity at the shows we play and there wasn't any to see when we were growing up," Nova Twins' Amy Love and Georgia South said in a joint statement. "Our audience have been our biggest supporters, encouraging the creativity and ideas behind the album. It's amazing to finally be able to translate our live sound onto an LP, so that everyone who wants to can join in the madness! We feel 333 Wreckords is the perfect home (massive love to Jason of Fever 333 for inviting us into their family). We can only hope that this album empowers people the way they have empowered us. This one's for all our Supernovas, keep shining bright!"
