Occasionally new saviors rise to restore rock’s soul and give it the kick in the ass it needs. In 2021, those saviors are Nova Twins' Amy Love and Georgia South and their two monstrous secret pedalboards.

Bassist Georgia South and vocalist/guitarist Amy Love embody everything right about rock, and they fly in the face of what's wrong with it. As two women of color—Love is half Iranian and half Nigerian, South is half Jamaican and half English—they're sick of being told who they should be, what kind of music they should play, or how to play it. They're sick of being asked how they do it (more on that in a minute). And most of all, they're tired of feeling out of place in the male-dominated rock world.

When considering the many bands that fall under the term “Britpop”–Oasis, Blur, Suede, Elastica, Radiohead’s early work, and more–it’s clear that the genre is more an attitude than a specific musical style. Still, there are a few guitar techniques and approaches that abound in the genre, many of which have been “borrowed” (the British music press’ friendly way of saying “appropriated”) from earlier British bands of the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s.
