Catch Queen Zee and Nova Twins this October in Coventry, where both bands will be taking part in Boudica Festival. With an aim to celebrate women within the music industry, Boudica Fest features a range of acts from across the genres, many of whom are rising stars in their art. Taking place in Coventry’s Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, this is a two-day arts event with live music taking place on the 6th October 2018.
The eclectically influenced Nova Twins are a bass-heavy cross between punk, grime and industrial. Very much a sound of their own design, Nova Twins are Amy Love and Georgia South from South-east London, who have used their original sound to deliver the unexpected. Their reward for delivering the unexpected? They’ve become one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming bands, with a burgeoning presence in the U.S and in Europe, and I suggest you check out the video below for their single ‘Lose Your Head’ so it can get stuck in your head too.
Queen Zee are a punk (yet, strangely pop) band with an ‘angry glam’ feel to them who have been on my radar since watching this video from their 2017 Reading and Leeds Festival performance. Their non-conformance to music and art is in places deep in subject matter, with material covering topics such as toxic relationships and transphobia, whilst still maintaining a sense of fun with other more carefree songs (note: Sass or Die). Their live show looks to be explosive and having supported the likes of Peaches, Dream Wife and Beth Ditto, Queen Zee are not ones to miss!
Boudica Festival begins on Friday 5th October 2018 with two independent films: ‘The Ballad of Shirley Collins’ and ‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’. Saturday 6th October brings some of the most exciting live acts in British music: experimental pop act Let’s Eat Grandma; indie-rock Say Sue Me; Nova Twins; Queen Zee; the ultra-psychedelic/folk Spill Gold; experimental electronica from Mich Cota and a DJ set from Savages.
