Watch The Veronicas' Intense New Video For "On Your Side," Directed By & Featuring Ruby Rose
The Veronicas have released the music video for their single, "On Your Side," a short film written and directed by television and film star, Ruby Rose. The follow-up to their ARIA #1 and 2x Platinum in Australia hit single “In My Blood”, “On Your Side” shifts the song’s original meditation on the tricky but rewarding business of staying friends with your ex and visualizes it into an intense PG-13 mini-film of unbridled passion and excess, acted out by real-life paramours Ruby Rose and Jessica Origliasso.
“I remember sitting in a London hotel room listening to some of the girls’ new music casually playing as we spoke about their new album,” remembers Ruby Rose about her instant attraction to the song. “When ‘On Your Side’ came on, I stopped in my tracks and asked them to replay it… and replay it.”
"Ruby Rose is known for creating powerful and intensely affecting work and being given the opportunity to collaborate with her artistic force has been an incredible experience, both personally and professionally,” adds Jessica Origliasso. “Lisa [Origliasso, other half of The Veronicas and Jessica’s twin sister] and I have always been drawn to unconventional and honest story telling through our music; Ruby brought this to the forefront in our video for 'On Your Side'.”
‘On Your Side’ was written and recorded in London with UK pop gurus Wayne Hector (One Direction's ‘Steal My Girl’, Nicki Minaj's ‘Starships’) and Jim Eliot (Kylie Minogue's ‘All The Lovers’ and ‘Two Hearts’, Ellie Goulding's ‘Anything Can Happen’) and produced by up and coming Swedish whiz-kid Ollipop.
The sisters are putting the finishing touches on their fourth studio album, which has a "heavy Euro electro pop" feel. They've had the luxury of working on the record while “In My Blood” continues to be one of the biggest singles of the year in Australia, as well as making inroads in the UK, US and Asia.
