Glamazon songwriters Mim and Liv Nervo are ready to make their debut as bona fide recording artists.
The Australian twins have written for some of the biggest names in the dance/pop arena – most notably: David Guetta and Kelly Rowland‘s ‘When Love Takes Over’ and Kylie‘s current US #1 dance single ‘Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)’. The credits really do roll on to include gems like Rachel Stevens‘ 2005 smash ‘Negotiate With Love’ (Nervo‘s first placement), Sophie Ellis-Bextor‘s ‘Not Giving Up On Love’, Wynter Gordon‘s ‘Drunk On Your Love’ and David Guetta‘s most recent Top 40 hit ‘Night of Your Life’ (featuring Jennifer Hudson).
Nervo, as a DJ/producer/songwriting duo, is truly a force to be reckoned with. But can they actually sell it as pop stars? You be the judge. Sonically, ‘We’re All No One’ sounds like something they could pitch Sia, if she was ever in need of a dance follow up to ‘Titanium’. It’s house with a familiar fluorescent 80s edge. Kinda like something that was on TV Rock‘s old Sunshine City album.
Take a listen Nervo‘s mainstream recording debut ‘We’re All No One’ – featuring Afrojack and Steve Aoki, who are understandably not on vocals:
Y’know, this cut-throat industry is wrought with artists that never quite succeed in their own right and happily settle to write hits for others. No shame, no shade in that whatsoever. Everyone’s got their lot in life. But with Nervo, you get a sense that this recording artistry is merely another aspect of their multi-faceted music profile. Put it this way, if the singles and albums never take off – these divas aren’t gonna crash and burn, and develop a Lindsay complex. They’ve still got a successful hit writing reputation to fall back on.
The arrival of Nervo‘s debut single really came at a perfect time after a summer of opening for Britney‘s Femme Fatale tour alongside stars like Nicki Minaj and pop vixen Jessie & The Toy Boys.
Nervo will release ‘We’re All No One’ as a digital bundle on 2 September – complete with remixes from Hook N Sling, Dave Aude and Jungle Fiction.
