“We’re not a normal kind of two people coming together.” It’s 2pm on a Tuesday in Brazil at the height of Carnival. Olivia “Liv” NERVO has just woken up to a day’s worth of unread emails, missed text messages and countless social media notifications.
It sounds like 2018 will be the year of NERVO. Are you aiming for world domination this year?
What is the label’s driving ethos?
Liv: “We’re doing our very best not to fit in a box. You know what kind of records are going to come out on Revealed. You know what records are going to come out on Protocol. You know what records are going to come out on Musical Freedom. I hope that Got Me Baby! keeps people guessing and listening and intrigued.”
Speaking of Fallon, you just had your first-ever late-night TV performance in America. How’d it go?
Liv: “We played on X Factor, but we DJed. [On Fallon], we were singing, we had microphones, we had dance moves.”
Mim: “And we only found out the day before that we weren’t gonna play behind a DJ booth.”
Liv: “We thought we were DJing. And we get there and they’re like, ‘Nah, we’re all singing.’ And we’re like, ‘Whaaaaat?!’”
After Miami, you’re hosting your #NERVONation stage at Tomorrowland over the summer. Any special surprises?
Liv: “We’re really pushing for a live element, because we always love a live element on our shows. We’re really excited to work with the Tomorrowland crew to build the line-up.”
What is the role of men in all this?
Mim: “Men have to be gentlemen, as always. A good man is a gentleman. The manners make the man. It’s just up to strong women to teach weaker women, and it’s the people to be taught from young ages what respect is, what boundaries are. It’s horrible that a few men in positions of power have muddied the waters, because there are a lot of good men out there as well. So it shouldn’t be a man-hating decade or year. It should be [about] uplifting women.”
Tomorrwland have announced another selection of massive names for their July festival.
Australian EDM duo Nervo have unveiled their latest single and it's a collaboration with Chicago rapper Chief Keef, called 'Champagne'.
Released via Spinnin' Records (who have just been bought by Warner Music for a cool $100 million) the collaboration occupies the ground between rap and tropical-infused trap.
As expected, the sisters deliver the track's low-key trap vibes whilst Chicago's Chief Keef delivers some auto tune verses to give the track something of a crossover appeal.
