Since stumbling upon the support of esteemed Dutch peer and label mate Afrojack back in 2010, sisterly duo Nervo have certainly given their genre a womanly touch of superior measures. In a familiar dose of their quirky Progressive stylings, Liv and Mim pick up where ‘We’re All No One’ left off and dive straight back into their ongoing quest to perfect the melodic vocal anthem. Showing steady signs of hitting the equation perfectly, this solid lead based outing of sound transitional qualities and their signature top line shenanigans, Electronic Dance Music’s leading ladies are well and truly out to shape 2012 as the year they take their well-rounded club stylings to the masses. Set to take the stage alongside David Guetta on his sold out UK tour and with further global exploits set throughout the summer, their quest for global domination may not be all that impossible after all.
