The Veronicas Release Music Video for ‘Cruel’
If you couldn't get "Untouched," the 2007 hit song from Aussie pop duo the Veronicas, out of your head, you're in luck: The sisters behind the song have released another music video for "Cruel" and it's just as catchy.
"Cruel" features a driving dance beat and lyrics like "Take my endless summer / turn it in to winter." The video shows the two ladies glammed up and driving around while singing straight to camera. Interestingly enough, according to a press release, the video was filmed on the same set as the videos for Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects" and Backstreet Boys' "Incomplete."
If you're not familiar with the Veronicas, here's a bit more about the singing duo: Lisa Origliasso and Jessica Origliasso are twins from Brisbane, Australia. The girls have been singing together since 1999 and you may have heard their dance-pop songs like "Popular," "Hook Me Up" and "Heavily Broken."
The girls came up with the name "the Veronicas" after being inspired by the cult classic movie Heathers.
"One day we saw the movie Heathers, and there’s a line where one girl asks, ‘Are you a Heather?’ and Winona Ryder’s character answers, ‘No, I’m a Veronica,’ and so we went with that, because she was this kind of cool, unique chick with an attitude," Jess told MTV.
According to Idolator, "Cruel" is the latest single off the Veronicas' self-titled album, which is available for purchase now. The girls are currently on tour and will be appearing in the US this summer.
