Sis­ter act keen to re­veal new songs at fes­ti­val

Pilbara News - - PILBARA LIFESTYLE - Louise Alling­ham

Pil­bara fans of Aussie pop favourites The Veron­i­cas are in for a treat as the duo are set to de­but some new songs at next month’s North West Fes­ti­val.

The Veron­i­cas — Jess and Lisa Origliasso — have al­most fin­ished writ­ing their fourth studio al­bum, to be re­leased later this year.

One half of the sib­ling duo, Jess Origliasso, said they were both look­ing for­ward to putting the new al­bum out and were ner­vous and ex­cited to play some un­re­leased songs for the first time at the fes­ti­val.

Origliasso said their North West Fes­ti­val set list would in­clude clas­sics such as 4ever and Un­touched, as well as new sin­gle, In My Blood.

The Veron­i­cas knocked Cana­dian rap­per Drake off the top spot in the charts with In My Blood, which is a de­par­ture from their dis­tinc­tive pop sound.

Jess de­scribes the new sin­gle as an “at­mo­spher­i­cal, elec­tron­i­cal sound­scape” de­scrib­ing the hyp­notic feel­ing of falling in love at first sight.

Hav­ing per­formed at only one fes­ti­val in Aus­tralia be­fore and very few re­gional gigs, Origliasso said the pair were ex­cited to come to Port Hed­land.

“(North West Fes­ti­val) just sounded re­ally fun be­cause we haven’t re­ally been able to travel to re­gional West­ern Aus­tralia be­fore, so it’s a new thing for us,” she said.

“There’s a dif­fer­ent vibe and feel­ing when you do fes­ti­vals and we want to be able to do more of those.”

“When we did do the re­gional tours, the en­tire town would come out for a night out. Peo­ple re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate you be­ing there.”
