The Veronicas Still Exist?
After a two-year hiatus, the progressive pop/pop-rock duo The Veronicas are back with two new music videos. Comprised of Australian twin sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso, the duo’s last release was in 2014 with their self-titled album. In short, they were long overdue for some content.
The music video for their single “In My Blood” was released shortly after the song this past summer. Based on the teaser for the video, I knew it was going to be very different from their earlier work. I didn’t like “In My Blood” the first time I listened to it, but the video helped ease me into their new sound. The video is red, overdramatic, and compliments the song perfectly.
The second video, “On Your Side,” was released this past week. Written by, directed by, and starring Jess’s girlfriend Ruby Rose, Jess and Rose play a couple struggling with addiction. Contrasted with “In My Blood,” “On Your Side” is much more serious with a definitive plot. I loved Rose’s involvement in the video, and I think it’s important to see videos like this break the heteroromantic norm.
