THE VERONICAS have revealed a new side of their artistry with the video for their latest single “Biting My Tongue,” which was written and directed by Jess and Lisa.
The cinematic video is the directorial debut for the pair and was filmed in England prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. It stars Jess and Lisa alongside actor/model/musician twins Bud and Aidan Brennan Williams and follows the story of feuding families and a star crossed relationship.
“Stepping into the role as directors on ‘Biting My Tongue’ came as a very natural progression as we have always taken the reins on all aspects of our creativity,” explain Jess and Lisa.
“Having always been heavily involved with the conception and creation of all our music videos, allowing ourselves that full creative control is where we feel most fulfilled and at home. We absolutely live for it.
“We’ve wanted to work with Bud and Aidan Brennan Williams for some time since connecting with them online and knew this was the perfect opportunity. They are musicians themselves, with their band We Are One. Their charisma is captivating to watch onscreen and being twins we all have an intrinsic bond in knowing how to work together in a way only twins know how.
“Taking on the role as directors gave us a chance to add another level to the character development that we love about creating music videos. When we found Aidan and Bud, we were thrilled to create a concept that would bring to our fans the chemistry and closeness of twinship. It gives a deep and intense view of the love and threat of that bond.”
“Biting My Tongue” was co-written with Australia’s premium songwriting and production team, David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii, aka DNA Songs, who together with The Veronicas share previous chart successes in the multi-platinum #1 ARIA singles “You Ruin Me” and “In My Blood.”
“Biting My Tongue” is the next chapter in The Veronicas’ extraordinary alternative pop career, throughout which they have cemented their place as bona fide pop culture icons.
