Two bands will go head-to-head at the Potters Bar Carnival on Sunday, after competing among many others in a Battle of the Bands.

One of the finalists, Supernova, have already begun making their way into the music industry with supports from Philip Saatchi, brother of the famous gallery owner Charles Saatchi, and Offtape Records.

I spoke to frontwoman Lola Warman, 14, and she explains: “It’s a five piece band and we’ve just started together. We formed about two months ago. We play pop rock.

“We’ve won two heats so far, the festival is the ending of the competition. We do covers but we’re going to start writing our own songs together after this. We have five songs we do together, Sweet Child of Mine by Guns ‘n’ Roses, Bruno Mars’ Locked out of Heaven and Run Away Baby, James Brown’s I feel Good and then Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon.”

The band are currently in talks to sign a record deal with Ran Steiner of Offtape Records and Philip Saatchi has written the group two songs.

Lola performs alongside four musicians, Ted Stevens on guitar, aged 13, Jackson Shoob on bass, 15, Jake Kramer on drums, 15, and Seth Cohen also on guitar, aged 11.

Lola tells me: “It’s very exciting. We’re going to start doing more gigs and more practice now.”
