Miriam (Mim) and Olivia (Liv) Nervo, or NERVO as they’re known, have been making their mark on the EDM scene for some time now. The Australian duo first gained attention for co-writing the Grammy Award-winning single, “When Love Takes Over” for David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. From there, they decided to focus on their own careers by writing their own songs. It wasn’t long before the girls became a staple of the music industry, with huge hits like “We’re All No One,” “The Way We See The World,” and “Reason” under their belts.
Now, only a few short years later, NERVO are one of the most exciting acts in EDM, headlining major festivals around the world and producing smash hit after smash hit. Currently ranked at #21 on the DJ Mag Top 100, the multi-talented sisters are enjoying a very successful year, having released 4 huge singles (most recently, “Ready For The Weekend” with R3HAB) while continuing to work on their upcoming debut album, which is due for release in 2015.
Last weekend, Mim and Liv touched down in Ottawa for a special Halloween show, and they arrived in full costume. Before their set, I was lucky enough to catch up with them for a quick interview. Friendly and full of energy, the girls spoke with me about plans for their album, the pros and cons of working with your sister, who usually emerges victorious when they have a fight, and more.
