Well, it’s official. Nervo‘s Mim and Liv are the coolest girls on the planet. And the luckiest. I want their jobs. All of them. Not only did they spend the summer touring with Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj on the “Femme Fatale” tour — THEY BREATHED THE SAME HALLOWED AIR AS BRITNEY AND NICKI! — but they’re gorgeous (yes, I’m bitter), and they’re multi-talented multi-hyphenates. They WROTE David Guetta’s “When Love Takes Over” (oh yeah, that little song), they’ve written for Ke$ha AND Kylie Minogue, toured with Paul Oakenfold, they’re accomplished and acclaimed producers, and they’ve traveled the world DJing. Oh, and they’re models.
And now, after crushing clubs with their own songs (“Irresistible,” featuring Ollie James went to No. 1 on the UK Club Charts), they’re branching out (where they find the time I have no clue) and creating more of their electro-pop dance music, like their hypnotic, hands-in-the-air new single, “We’re All No One,” featuring Afrojack and Steve Aoki.
Last week we saw a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of Nervo’s “We’re All No One” video, and today we’ve got the finished product, which features the girls and their friends, who’ve perfected the Cali-casual look, living a perfect school’s-out summer day cruising sunny streets in a vintage car, hitting up a convenience store (and getting carded by Steve Aoki) and wasting away the day until night falls, at which point everyone shows off their perfect young bodies by stripping down and jumping in the pool. The whole thing feels like an Urban Outfitters catalog come to life. Free People even. Sigh. Disaffected, louche lifestyle forever.
