English rock duo Nova twins have joined Loudwire’s Gear Factor to perform their favorite guitar and bass riffs. Watch the girls take you through what inspired them as young artists and how they achieve their experimental sound.
Bassist Georgia South was inspired by NERD to pick up a bass. It was the riff from “Anti Matter” that sealed the deal for South, planting a seed for the unique playstyle she would develop as Nova Twin.
Although Nova Twins’ music may sound heavily electronic, the duo does not use synthesizers. All their wild effects are generated through pedals and their instruments, plus a special “Hot Hand” midi controller ring that Georgia wears on her finger to modulate her riffing on the track “Toolbox”.
Stomping across her pedalboard, guitarist Amy Love shows how to play riffs from songs like “Taxi,” “Antagonist” and “Cleopatra,” while South demos “KMB,” “Vortex” and more.
