Real-life couple Ruby Rose and Jessica Origliasso embrace their rocky relationship in The Veronicas' latest visual.
UPDATE // NOVEMBER 17:
The Veronicas' first narrative-based music video plays out as a passionate love affair between real-life couple Ruby Rose and Jessica Origliasso. It details the blossoming of a fiery relationship that's punctured by drug addiction and betrayal.
“When I first heard the song, I was drawn to the lyrics. Some songs tell the first chapter of a story; others only tell the last, but here, I was listening to a full narrative of someone’s sincere experience with love,” Rose said in a statement about the video. “It stood out to me, and like any great narrative, [I] wanted to know what was going to happen next… The only thing is I threw out the original concept for the the night before shooting, when I realized how many times they had used cars in previous videos. I wrote the treatment for what stands as the video today as an 11th hour revision.”
The Ollipop and Freddy Haggstam-produced song serves as the second single off The Veronicas' forthcoming studio album which sees inspiration from Kylie Minogue and Grimes.
“Lisa and I have always been drawn to unconventional and honest story telling through our music,” Jessica said in a statement. “Ruby brought this to the forefront in our video for ‘On Your Side. The video shares a story between Ruby’s character and mine. It’s a true to life look at the passion and protection of two people falling in love and, ultimately, a love that cannot be broken.”
