The Veronicas hail from Australia, yet their impact has been felt around the globe. Jessica and Lisa Origliasso, twin girls born on Christmas Day, were teenagers when they moved to LA, signed a record deal with Sire Records and released their first album, The Secret Life Of… and three top ten singles including the timeless anthem 4Ever.
A second album followed. Hook Me Up the lead single shot straight to Number 1 and was quickly followed by the iconic worldwide hit Untouched (which became the first Australian single to sell more than a million copies digitally in the USA). In 2014 after signing to Sony Music, the girls again reached the Number One spot in their home country with You Ruin Me and it was also a hit around the world including Top 5 in the UK. Just two years later in 2016, The Veronicas were again at the top of the charts with In My Blood another Number One single. In 2019, The Veronicas remain at the forefront of pop music with their latest single Think Of Me. In the streaming age, the song has already amassed millions of streams and critical acclaim, it was the Most Added Song to Australian radio the week of release and was certified GOLD soon after.
This year they’ve shown their versatility and staying power again with appearances at Field Day and Bluesfest and a newly signed global deal with MTV: with their own TV series airing around the world in late 2019 in more than 180 countries. In June they featured on triple j’s Like A Version with their musical collaborator and friend Allday covering Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi and the performance had more than a million views in Australia that week. With Ten top 10 hits, 3 x Number Ones, 500 million+ streams, ARIA Awards and more than 175 million Youtube/VEVO streams and 3.5 million social connections The Veronicas are unstoppable.
