If you haven’t heard of The Nervo Twins before you will be hearing a lot more of them soon. Chances are you have heard plenty of their songs, not even knowing it was them!
The Nervo Twins, Mim and Liv, started out as fashion models in Australia and by the age of 16 decided to begin pursuing music. They were accepted into the Opera Australia academy, but decided to pursue a more pop music focused career instead. At the age of 18 they signed to SONY/ATV Music Publishing and embarked on a successful songwriting career. Since then these sisters have written songs for Ke$ha, Ashley Tisdale, and The Pussycat Dolls. The song that has gained the most recognition has to be “When Love Takes Over”, which they co-wrote for David Guetta and Kelly Rowland, and went onto win a Grammy.
In March 2010 they announced a worldwide recording deal with Virgin Records/EMI Music and a month later released “This Kind of Love” through their independent UK-based dance label, Loaded Records. It went number one on the world club charts, number two on the music week club charts, and number six on the music week pop charts.
Nervo is set to open for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour and I cannot wait! I think its great to bring something new into the mix. We’re not used to seeing DJs (let alone two FEMALE DJs) being included on a huge pop tour. This tour is sure to expose not only Nervo to new audiences, but it will definitely expose this genre of Electric Trance House music to a wider audience. I think their song “Irresistible”, featuring Ollie James, will be a huge hit! With its catchy, banging dance beat it can’t fail with Britney’s fans.

“Femme Fatale”, Britney Spears’ highly anticipated seventh studio album was released today. For months there has been so much talk about this album. Everyone can’t wait to see what Britney has done this time. People have even been saying this is her best album to date. Her first two singles off the album, “Hold It Against Me” and “Till The World Ends” have been huge hits, and personally I think this is the best its going to get. I was very disappointed with how “Femme Fatale” turned out, especially after all the great things that have been said these past few months.
The whole album basically consists of heavy beats that drown out Britney’s auto-tuned, squeaky little girl voice. We all know that Britney is no great singer and we rely on her live performances and great dance moves to ‘wow’ us. But lets face it, Britney is getting older and with some of her more recent performances the dance moves just haven’t been up to par. This would be the time where most performers might focus more on the music itself, but this is not the case with Britney. Without a power house voice and her vanishing dance moves what’s left for Britney?
I found the album to very awkward at times, with fast dance beats, but half-speed rhythm in the vocals (like in “Inside Out”). “How I Roll” is so monotonous, making it hard to listen to after the first minute. There is absolutely no feeling in any of the songs, making Britney sounds extremely bored and uninspired, like in “Seal It With A Kiss”. She even has a collaboration with Will.I.Am on “Big Fat Bass”, which was extremely dissapointing with Britney’s repetitive monotone voice.
The only songs that I could stand to listen to again are “I Wanna Go” and “Criminal”. “I Wanna Go” is the typical Britney dance song, very catchy, can’t get out of your head type song. The only song where I think Britney really stepped out of the box was “Criminal”. It sounds more like old-school Britney (like “Sometimes”) and reminds me of the type of music that made her who she is today. Its a pop ballad, with a Renaissance-like melody playing throughout on the flute.
Overall, a very disappointing album. It is overly computerized, with horrible lyrics that are all too noticable (like “Got me kinda hot, but I ain’t sweating you. Steaming like a pot full of vegetables”). I expected better from Britney and producers Max Martin and Dr. Luke. Despite the mixed reviews, “Femme Fatale” will definitely sell due to the name attached to the album. This morning Britney announced a summer tour with Enrique Iglesias to promote her new album.
