Miriam and Olivia Nervo — the two Australian sisters better known just by the collective Nervo — are currently riding the success of a song called “Haute Mess.”
At least half of that title aptly describes them. As shrewd businesswomen as they are fashionable, these music producers, songwriters, and DJs wow crowds with their outre street style as much as with their sounds. (It doesn’t hurt their sartorial flair that they’re also models, official faces of Cover Girl.)
So they’re haute, but they’re certainly not messes. In the usual boys’ club of the dance and pop music industries, they continue to make serious headway as both performers and composers. As songwriters, they’ve penned hits like the David Guetta/Kelly Rowland smash, “When Love Takes Over.” And as musicians in their own right, they’ve charted globally with years of anthemic, hooky club bangers.
These days, that means an almost constant schedule of global travel, between rocking clubs, festivals, and the front row of fashion shows. So how do they manage to keep it all together — and squeeze in time to work on the next big project?
We caught up with them in Miami to get the keys to their success, all in a tidy 90 seconds. Check it out.
