The evolution of the Veronicas has been subtle and drawn out. The duo has been making music together since 2006, but 6 years after their debut, what can be heard is a definite assimilation of dance music, with a signature Veronicas twist. ”Lolita,” the duo’s lead single to their upcoming third album, Life on Mars, is sparkling electronica at first glance- but as the song continues, it delves into much darker territory. Sparse elements toward the end take the Origlasso lyrics to a much more compelling, deeper place. Could “Lolita” bring the Veronicas into a new era of musical relevancy? Only time will tell, but we are certainly looking forward to finding out.
