Ever since they penned the lyrics and melody to the hugely successful “When Love Takes Over”, produced by David Guetta and featuring Kelly Rowland, NERVO have continued to rise and rise in the dance scene, in both the clubs, festival circuit and in the charts. The amazingly successful writing partnership of Melbourne born twin-sisters, Mim and Liv Nervo, has won them a Grammy and placed them at the top of the a-list for artists to work with.
With only a few years in the international spotlight, their resumé already reads like a who’s who of the pop and dance scene. They wrote the first single from Kylie Minogue’s latest album Aphrodite, have written songs for Ke$ha, J-Lo, Britney, David Guetta, Cheryl Cole and Armin Van Buuren and opening shows for Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears on their arena tours… the list is dizzyingly impressive for a duo that were two years ago unheard of, unless of course you religiously trawled the clubs of Ibiza every weekend.
As well as producing, writing and the occasional modelling, the girls are also singers in their own right, and hope to release their debut EP in between a hectic tour schedule in the first half of next year. Liv took some time out with us to talk about writing Armin Van Buuren’s latest single “Not Giving Up On Love”, the makings of a good dance song, the dynamics of working with your twin sister and how they nearly gave it all up.
There latest hit “We’re All No One” sees them singing and features two of the biggest names in dance music at the moment – Afrojack and Steve Aoki.
