Gig Review | Nova Twins | King Tuts, Glasgow | 11.02.2022 

Fresh off the back of their recent single release, K.M.B that’s rightly got the praise it deserves, Nova Twins hit the road on a completely sold out UK tour – rounding off the first week in style, the London duo roll into Glasgow for a Friday night bash in the iconic King Tuts Wah Wah Hut.

A band who have had recent disruption to the release of their debut album, they show no signs of slowing down and have been one of of the busiest bands on show at the moment and with explosive songs with Tom Morello & Bring Me The Horizon, not to forget their recent tour with Enter Shikari, you can certainly see why they’re so exciting at the moment. 


Only support on the bill was Derry band, Cherym. The Northern Irish trio were brought into this leg of the tour late due to covid striking and taking out of the the main supports. Despite the late invite, it was hard to tell this was the case – the energy and enthusiasm brought to an already jam packed room was a joy to witness and it was very easy to assume this wont be the last we see of the pop punk band.

Those who know a Friday night in Tuts, simply know – and after Nova Twins explosive set, it was evident that this show will remain in the history of the venue showing why the duo were on such a stark rise to the top.

The mood of the room was on an epic high for the arrival of Georgia and Amy who were fresh and ready to blow the roof of Tuts. A no nonsense start with Antagonist straight into Vortex got the crowd into a wild frenzy showing it was a perfect ‘start as you mean to go on’ sort of opening. Their experimental electronics were something quite special to witness – with thrashing and thunderous drumming from both full kit and effects machines really blasted its way through the room perfectly.

Offering an already sweaty crowd a taster of what’s to come from their upcoming debut album ‘Supernova’, they drop latest single K.M.B mid-set to a gigantic reaction and the reception is massively deserved. It was a set that was designed for all ears from old fans from day one to brand new. The ending of the set was as mind blowing as the start – songs that saw mosh pits the size of the room showing the crowd were after more. Bassline Bitch and then finally closed off a mesmerising set in style.

Nova Twins have a very exciting future and this Glasgow show was a perfect indication for what lies in store for the next chapter of the band.

Signs around the venue. A safe space for all.
