We promise this is not a dream and that we haven’t time traveled back to the year 2007. The Veronicas are definitely making a huge comeback!
As a follow up to their ARIA #1 and 2x Platinum hit single ‘In My Blood’, the Australian sister duo has released the music video to their new hit single ‘On Your Side’. Directed and written by Orange Is The New Black star Ruby Rose, the video portrays the countless highs and lows of remaining friends with your ex. It’s an intense mini-film of unbridled passion and excess that’s acted out by none other than Ruby Rose and Jessica Origliasso themselves.
“I remember sitting in a hotel room in London listening to some of the girls’ new music. When “On Your Side” came on, I stopped in my tracks and asked them to replay it… and then replay it again. When I first heard the song I was drawn to the lyrics. Some songs tell the first chapter of a story and others only tell the last, but with this I was listening to a full narrative of someone’s sincere experience with love.”
The passionate chemistry shared between Ruby and Jessica is something that cannot be falsified; it’s almost as if you’re in the room experiencing the story line for yourself. It’s practically impossible to deny the authenticity.
“Lisa and I have always been drawn to unconventional and honest story telling through our music; Ruby really brought this to the forefront in our video for On Your Side. The video shares a story between Ruby’s character and mine. It’s a true to life look at the passion and protection of two people falling in love.”
The single was written and recorded in London with UK pop gurus Wayne Hector (One Direction’s ‘Steal My Girl’, Nicki Minaj’s ‘Starships’) and Jim Eliot (Kylie Minogue’s ‘All The Lovers’ and ‘Two Hearts’, Ellie Goulding’s ‘Anything Can Happen’). It was also produced by an up and coming Swedish whiz-kid Ollipop.
‘On Your Side’ is the second single to be lifted from The Veronicas forthcoming album, which will be released in early 2017. The tone of the album is set to have a “heavy Euro electro pop” feel – something not too far off from their older music. It’s been said that the duo are currently finalizing the finishing touches; hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer!
Now available on iTunes, Spotify & Apple Music – make sure to buy and stream as much as possible!
