    In lesser hands, an album that at times sounds like R2D2 breakdancing in an industrial spin-dryer might make for trying company. Yet, for all their Day-Glo stridency, Nova Twins not only know how to write songs, but how to arrange them too.

    Never has an album title been better chosen - the duo are at the centre of a brightly burning, ever-expanding sonic explosion, all of their own making, and just like a supernova, it is utterly stunning to witness. Bow down to the queens.

    Nova Twins bend and blend genres like alchemists, generating a sound specific to them and the undertones of their social movement. ... Supernova is like our generation’s “f**k you” to every version of “the man,” much like The Clash did in 1977 and Rage Against the Machine did in 1992.

    Supernova basks in its own raw originality and kicks any naysayers to the curb with its unforgettable impact.

    A handful of the album’s later tracks, including “Sleep Paralysis” and the restless “Choose Your Fighter”, do perhaps fall short of other songs’ ‘absolute banger’ status, but nowhere is there an outright miss.

    Overall, ‘Supernova’ is exactly what it says on the tin - a bright burst of energy that will leave you awe-struck.

    This second album brings the heft and enormity to make them serious contenders. [Jul 2022, p.78]
