Aussie sisters Miriam and Olivia Nervo, aka Nervo, are the quintessential multi-hyphenates. Counting songwriting, record production, DJing, and modeling as notches on their résumés, the two have worked on records for Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue. They also slay the fashion industry with couture-driven looks and a CoverGirl contract. As global EDM superstars, the sisters continue to be an incredible inspiration to legions of women that aspire to break into a male-dominated industry.
In 2015, Nervo released their debut album, Collateral, featuring a diverse list of collaborators like Nile Rodgers and Kreayshawn. On the record, Nervo expanded beyond club-constrained music and electro-pop boundaries into a more serious, inspiration-driven tone. A technicolor-splashed video has already been released for their girl power anthem, “Hey Ricky,” and now, “Let It Go.”
A cross between pop and drum & bass, “Let It Go” chronicles the intersections we encounter in our lives when we recognize something isn’t working. The video’s heroine is a ballerina, conveying beauty and strength on stage that doesn’t translate once the costume comes off. Battling with an abusive relationship and criminal activity, she goes through an inner journey that transforms her day-to-day life into that of the powerful figure she represents while performing. It flashes between delicate ballet and hard-to-look-at physical altercations, eventually intertwining the two in a fog-soaked drama that’s riveting to watch. As the song says, “Today doesn’t start again/ Doesn’t ever get a second chance/ It’s too late if you’re wondering/ ’Cause you’re never gonna take it back.” We think that’s advice all of us can take to heart.
