The music duo Nervo, consists of two Australian girls named Miriam Nervo and Olivia Nervo. The girls can sing, they make remix, and most importantly, they make you want to dance! The twins began gaining interest in music at the age of 16 when they turned down modeling and pursued a career in music. After being accepted into the Opera Australian Academy they started becoming interested in pop music. Two years later they were already starting to gain exposure when a Melbourne based music producer asked Nervo to sample his demo songs. Shortly after they were signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
Unlike most dance music you find these days, Nervo actually writes their songs, and these songs have become popular. Singers likeAshley Tisdale and the Pussycat Dolls have had songs written by Nervo. One of the most popular of their written songs even received a Grammy for “When Love Takes Over” sang by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland.
By 2010 they were playing on main stages at British music festivals and eventually signed a recording deal with Virgin Records. Nervo’s first release “This Kind of Love” went to number one on the pop charts and by 2011 Nervo was opening for Britney Spears.
2012 has opened the stage for Nervo with their hit song “Were All No One”. Which was released in March and reached the number 8 spot on Billboard’s US Hot Dance Club Songs.
We're All No One
The song that caught my particular interest was “You’re Gonna Love Again” which is climbing the charts in the US and the UK.
Nervo is more than dance music. Proof of their dedication to their music is their quote on their Facebook, “Art before chart.” This shows me that while their sound is definitely dance-pop, the lyrics and messages of there songs are more important than just about a typical “dance” song. So far, their music is about a positive message. For example in “You’re Gonna Love Again”:
“We gotta try even if it’s hard, try baby, understand.
To find a rainbow in every storm, you gotta believe.
Don’t ever doubt that you don’t below now
Cause it’s starting with you, It’s starting with me”
Through a combination of positive lyrics, fast beats, and an influence of Dub; there’s no doubt Nervo has what it takes to be the next big thing. Whether you just want to dance or you just need a pick-me-up, Nervo can and will find a place on your IPod.
