Music: Aussie Imports – The Veronicas

The “Down Under” has imported great musical pop groups and singers like INXS and Kylie Minogue to the US.  One pop act that has not crossed over just yet, these twin sisters hailing from Brisbane – Jessica and Lisa Origliasso, make up the pop rock group The Veronicas.

In 2005 – The Veronicas released their debut album – “The Secret Life of …”. The LP won me over with a great mix of pop rock beats, up-tempo rifts, and a mixture of pop ballads.  In 2007, the second album was released – Hook Me Up.  For me it wasn’t a great album, even though they had 4 top ten singles on the Aussie charts.  I think they fell in love with the drum machines and that off-putting electro-pop genre.

But rumour has it that the group will be returning back to basics with classic rock beats and sounds.  I’m eagerly awaiting their 2012 album release, and maybe this is the year The Veronicas will be heard on US radio

Check their wiki for more info on The Veronicas and their discography.
