Whoever had “dude who wrote ‘Rocket Man’ is a large fan of a contemporary nü-metal band” on their bingo card for 2023 have to be soiling their britches proper no, as a result of because it seems, Sir Elton John has publicly gone on the document praising London’s Nova Twins.
Whereas talking with BBC’s Clara Amfo, John stated the band “might mild up Sheffield” once they take the stage on the upcoming Glastonbury Pageant.
“These women rock my world. I’ve had them on the present, I’ve performed their music, too. It’s so great, what they do. I’m so trying ahead to seeing them reside as a result of you possibly can really feel what it’s going to be like. They’re are simply, for me, phenomenal.
“These women might mild up Sheffield. They’re simply phenomenal, the way in which their movies look. It jogs my memory of Rick James a bit, Larry Graham of Central Station, Sly and the Household Stone, it’s obtained that sort of… Bootsy Collins [vibe]. Nova Twins, I really like you to loss of life and so they’re going to storm Glastonbury. If they arrive on stage and it’s a sunny day, they might steal the entire thing.”
That’s some big reward from one of many largest artists alive right this moment. I imply, the dude gave us Goodbye, Yellow Brick Street for fuck’s sake — he is aware of a factor or two about music. Couple that with the truth that he’s obtained contribution credit with everybody from Eminem to Queens of the Stone Age and one factor is abundantly clear: he pays consideration to fashionable music.
Naturally, getting help from Elton John have to be completely mind-blowing when you’re a British act. So it solely is smart that the band reacted in sort on social media.
