Track Of The Day: Nova Twins – ‘Lose Your Head’

A lesson in cutting loose and walking on the wild side, London-based duo Nova Twins have shared a video for their latest track ‘Lose Your Head’. Adorned in neon make-up and customised boiler suits, Amy & Georgia blast through this mind-melter of a track in the accompanying visuals, proving there’s no limit to their creative potential.

Praised by Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, Nova Twins’ abrasive, genre-defying tunes are consistent favourites here at Get In Her Ears and ‘Lose Your Head’ is no exception. It’s a sonic spiral of distorted bass lines, lethal vocals and thunderous beats that fizzes with a unique punk-infused energy.

“Flipping punk rock on its head, ‘Lose Your Head’ is a rejection of off-the-peg opinions,2 the duo explain about the track. “It’s a rallying cry and a celebration of difference, an invitation to walk your own path. We want to open people’s minds and invite them to the wild side.”

Nova Twins will be touring throughout the summer across the UK, Europe and America. They’ll also be headlining Loud Women’s night at The Lexington on August 18th (tickets here)

Check out the video for ‘Lose Your Head’ below. Follow the pair on Facebook for more updates.

Track Of The Day: HAWK – ‘Can’t Explain’

As any avid follower of Get In Her Ears will be aware, we’re pretty besotted with everything Berlin-based HAWK create, and their latest single is no exception. Released as a AA side with accompanying track ‘Below’, ‘Can’t Explain’ is a wonderfully intense whirlwind of burning passion.

Somewhat heavier than past material, the track was written as a reaction to people’s ignorance and the power privilege has to erase the voices of those who need to be heard. Continuing HAWK’s track record of creating captivating soundscapes with an acute social awareness, ‘Can’t Explain’ oozes thrashing riffs and urgent beats, as the immense power of Julie Hawk’s soaring vocals builds the tension and drives it forwards with an empowering, impassioned splendour. Although perhaps more raucous in sound that previous offerings, the track loses none of the glorious, spellbinding beauty and enchanting grace that the band have become known for.

 

‘Can’t Explain’ once again proves why it’s vital that we have HAWK in our lives. Not only intent on creating rousing sonic delights, they are dedicated to raising awareness of pressing social issues, and bring them to the fore of all they do.

‘Can’t Explain’/’Below’ is out now via Veta Records. Listen on Spotify.
