If there was ever a time when Miriam and Olivia Nervo weren’t the life of the party, we have a hard time believing it. Ever since they began performing under the name Nervo, the Australian twins—better known as Mim and Liv—have created a personality brand synonymous with their high-energy, ethereal sound. Whether they’re on a larger-than-life outdoor stage at EDC or Ultra or inside Omnia Nightclub at Caesars Palace for their bewitching residency show, the sisters are always engaging the dancefloor with smoking, pulsating sets.
Peaking at No. 14 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart, 2015 debut album Collateral—and its hook-laden single “Bulletproof”—has cemented the duo as one of the must-see, must-hear big-room house acts in the EDM circuit. “It has our life in it. Our life stories; our heart. It’s our blood, sweat and tears,” Mim told us in August.
While it might seem like they were fast-tracked to fame—Mim and Liv started their careers as models—they’ve actually been behind the scenes, writing hits for other performers since 2005. As songwriters, Nervo has worked with everyone from Kesha and Kylie Minogue to Avicii and Armin van Buuren, and the twins co-wrote the Grammy-winning 2009 David Guetta smash “When Love Takes Over.”
Nervo’s reach doesn’t stop with the music. After their mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, the sisters recently teamed up with a Canadian charity to bring awareness to cancer programs and research. Whether it’s through music, philanthropy or both, Nervo’s mission is always the same: to bring good vibes to the masses. Nervo at Omnia at Caesars Palace, May 14 & 17.
