With their debut Singapore show in the back and having been welcomed to the country warmly by the fans who had been holding out a visit from The Veronicas for so long, the Origliasso sisters chat with Larry about life in constant commute and their plans to return.
“That is definitely the plan, to spend more time here.” Lisa says. “This is a great start, we’re already in love. We definitely won’t leave it another 10 years, I can tell you that. I mean, just even on personal time, we’d love to come here and spend some time exploring and immersing ourselves in the culture.”
“We really connected with the people here.” Jess adds. “The people here are so kind and they really connect with you; they look at you in the eyes and they have conversations with you. We’ve done a lot of travelling and that’s not as common as you’d hope. We’ve fallen in love with Singapore.”
Looking ahead, The Veronicas are very much in new album headspace, working hard on the follow up to their self-titled record that brought them back to the attention of many after a few years in limbo. They talk about their re-emergence and the ‘rebirth’ of the duo’s musical direction.
“We always called it a rebirth because it felt like that,” Jess says. “We felt like, essentially, a new band. I think that’s good to feel like that, maybe even [on] every record to feel like that. It is so wonderful to have a team of people behind us; when we tell that story about meeting with Denis Handlin, the head of Sony Australia, for the first time, he sat us down and he instilled us with so much value and confidence we’d really lost in ourselves over those few lost years of being put on hold, essentially. As creative souls, you feel like you need to be constantly putting that out and to be roadblocked in that sense…it was really incredible to meet Denis and to have that experience and his team behind us.”
