Nervo – Sober
rom songwriters to artists and super-fans to superstars, electronic dance music’s first sisters – Mim and Liv Nervoof NERVO – have staged a miraculous climb onto the international stage, straight from the pit in front of it. Now they are releasing their new single “Sober” today.
The duo explains, “We wanted to make a record that worked on the dance floor for the summer but also had some lyrical substance. We’ve all had those SOBERing moments when you realize a relationship isn’t what you thought it was and this is what this song is about. It’s a melancholy summer song. Hopefully people will be able to relate while having a dance at the same time.”
Mim and Liv’s career caught fire in 2009, when they co-wrote the emphatic and grand global hit “When Love Takes Over” – for David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. But their journey into dance music started years prior in the festival fields of their native Australia, when as teenagers they went all-out for life-changing electronic acts like The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, and Fatboy Slim.
Most recently NERVO has released the viral hit “Best Friend” which has become the official iPhone X campaign launch song, reached #1 on radio and iTunes, has over 30 million views on YouTube and over 60 million streams on Spotify.
Their friends and collaborators in the world showed up to support them. “We’re All No One” with Afrojack and Steve Aoki (No. 8 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart), ”The Way We See The World” with Afrojack, Dimitri Vegasand Like Mike (the official anthem of Tomorrowland 2011, which has garnered over 45 million YouTube views), “The Other Boys” with Kylie Minogue and Jake Shears for Sissor Sisters (reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Charts), “Like Home” with Nicky Romero: their list of A-list collaborators is dance music’s longest and most enviable, and in a world dominated by bros, that’s one heck of a sister act.
