It’s been five years of unfulfilled promises for ‘new material’ by The Veronicas but now they’re back, after multiple release dates changes, misleading tweets and a bunch of concept teasers (which included a demo of Could’ve Been, an acoustic number).
Finally, after the long wait, the twins took to Twitter to announce the release of Lolita, the first single from their upcoming album Life On Mars.
Don’t know what ‘Lolita’ means?
Now you do.
From the image change they went through, I assumed that this track would be a bit heavier on the grunge side, since they adopted a more mature and rough look for themselves. Well I guess I’m not much of a psychic, because Lolita is the total opposite. The single is leaning towards the upbeat, trance genre, which is still pretty sweet. If you’re a fan of their second album, Hook Me Up, you’ll like this track, because traces of their 2007 effort can be detected in it. What’s different though, is that this time the girls carry their vocals over the load of dance sounds, instead of letting the two elements blend underneath all that autotune.
Watch out for the stream of listeners listing the twins as just another artist jumping on the dance-pop bandwagon with the release of Lolita. But let’s remind ourselves that The Veronicas pretty much started the electronic/pop game when they released Untouched in ’07.
In any case, it’s pretty clear that Lolita will be a chart-topper when it hits the airwaves. Now all we have left to do is to anticipate the music video. Give the track a spin, and guess how the video will look!
