photography by chloe paul For identical twin sisters Miriam "Mim" Nervo and Olivia "Liv" Nervo, scoring a songwriting deal with the world's largest music publish- ing company at the tender age of 18 was only the prelude to a decade that's seen them rise through the ranks of electronic dance music. In 2009, a few years after signing with Sony/ ATV, the former models cowrote and produced their frst hit, the Grammy Award–winning "When Love Takes Over," with David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. Building on that momentum, they later penned songs for a string of high-profle pop stars (Britney Spears, Kesha) while mastering dee- jaying software like Logic Pro in their downtime. Raised in Australia, the sisters, who now pro- duce, record, and deejay together under the name Nervo, have stepped outside the studio in favor of a more nomadic lifestyle, crisscrossing the globe to get behind the turntables in EDM capitals like Ibiza, São Paulo, and, of course, Las Vegas. This past year, multiple Vegas nightclubs, including Omnia at Caesars Palace, played host to Nervo residencies, leading up to the July release of their debut studio album, Collateral. A mix of new material and proven hits like "Hold On" and "You're Gonna Love Again," the album ascended Billboard's and iTunes' ultracompeti- tive Dance charts within days of its release, proving the sisters' staying power in a genre that ultimately remains dominated by men. Likewise, the album's success confrmed what Forbes suggested last year when it tentatively named Nervo the EDM scene's highest-earning female act based on touring revenue and lucrative contracts with big-name brands like CoverGirl. Judging from their ease at climbing charts, we doubt it'll take Nervo long to eclipse more players in the EDM scene. November 21.
