COMEBACK: THE VERONICAS


I had the pleasure of being able to interview The Veronicas over email for my Journalism assignment a few months ago. Here is the final product:






After the success of their previous albums, both peaking at #2 on Australian music charts, The Veronicas are ready to share their third mind-blowing record with the world.

Having heard their music progress from pop ballads to rock and electro-pop has fans wondering what genre they’re exploring for their new record, due early next year

“We would call it progressive pop with rock and rhythmic soul,” Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, better known as The Veronicas, said about their long awaited album.

Now 26, the sultry Brisbane twins have spent the past four years touring the world,  lending their vocals to other artists and drawing inspiration from “life, art and culture” around them.

That four year gap has allowed them to develop a clear and experienced vision of who they are and the impact they want their music to have on Pop Culture.

“[In the process] we have learn a lot about ourselves as artists, and also about being smart business women in the music world,” they said.

The first single is expected to be dropped late this year and the girls couldn’t be happier, sharing that there are so many songs they “can’t wait to finally get out there!”

Their aim this time around was to push themselves and what their fans expected from them, yet still create something that felt grounded in their identity as The Veronicas.

“We try to write songs personal to us, yet relatable by all,” they explained, and it’s this natural born ability to connect with their audience that has gotten them far.

Nowadays, they’re working hard to put the final touches on the album after generally spending 10 hours every day in the writing and recording process.

Although it may not seem very glamorous, it’s what they need to overcome in order to get out on the road again and share the songs with their fans.

Last week, the girls had secret shows in L.A to showcase a few of the new songs, rock out to the old ones, and put their spin on songs by other bands.

“We’ve been focusing on pushing ourselves out of the box. It’s been a while since our last record so we have been very inspired, and have a lot to say.”

Considering that their past records have gone up to four times platinum, we know that they definitely won’t disappoint us with what they have in store for us next.

And, hearing a handful of the new songs such as “Cold,” “Let Me Out” and “Dead Cool,” they’re definitely on the road to another huge success with this record!
