V-Day done the right way, is Valentine’s Day done The Veronicas way, and yesterday the Brisbane pop-duo gifted us a musical IOU in the form of a teaser for forthcoming single Without You that we’re counting down to cash in, when it drops in March.
An overcast sky and crashing waves set the scene for a brutally raw yet empowering ode to heartbreak, letting go and moving on in the one minute video teaser for what will be Lisa and Jess Origliasso’s first release since 2017.
It’s been a tumultuous few years for the renowned duo, who’ve had issues with a troublesome celebrity ex and multiple rumours of a rift play out in the spotlight.
With lyrics like “I know you said I’d never find myself without you. Told me I’m sick and I’m never getting better without you. But there’s so much that you got wrong about me. Without you, I can hear my voice again,” it’s not too hard to figure out who the “you” reference is about. There’s glorious freedom in writing your feelings out, and our beloved Veronicas have always had a penchant for melodic, pop-laden revenge which continues in Without You.
Recently announced as the headline act for this year’s Big Gay Day in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, fans heading along to the event on Sunday, 10 March may very well be amongst the first to hear Without You in full. All in all, we’re glad our favourite twins are back making spectacular music together again!
If there’s one message that rings out loud and clear it’s this: to the muse behind this musical lament – these girls can do anything Without You. Stay tuned, The Veronicas new story begins this March.
The Veronicas headline Brisbane’s Big Gay Day at 308 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley on Sunday, 10 March. All event info available HERE.
