"On Your Side"

"In My Blood" is a song by Australian pop duo The Veronicas for their upcoming fourth studio album. It was co-written by The Veronicas twins, Lisa Origliasso and Jessica Origliasso, along with Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci and produced by the latter two under the collective name DNA. The track is the lead single from the yet-to-be-titled album and was released on 10 June 2016.


"In My Blood" was co-written by The Veronicas (Jessica Origliasso and Lisa Origliasso) along with Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci in Sydney.[1] The duo have previously collaborated with the latter two on their 2014 single "You Ruin Me".[1] Speaking about the inspiration behind the track Jessica described it as, "... that elated, euphoric feeling of love at first sight... I was going through something at the time I wanted to capture. Love and adrenaline are rushing through your blood. It's like a chemical injection. You've instantly connected with someone. You're knocked out by this person."[2]

The duo credit Kylie Minogue as an inspiration for the sound of the song.[3] Speaking about the sound, Robbie Daw of Idolator compared the recording to other dance-pop tracks saying, "'In My Blood' is a dreamy foray into dance-pop territory that has shades of Kylie Minogue, Robyn and even Texas."[4] In the chorus the duo sing "we don't have to wait all night to know if this is really love. We don't have to wait all night 'cause I can feel you in my blood," with a throbbing bass line that transitions into the hook with a robotic drop.[5]

Artwork and release

On 2 June 2016 The Veronicas announced the release of their new single, "In My Blood", by posting the official artwork on their Twitter account.[6] The visual features The Veronicas standing side by side, completely naked and covered from neck to toes in glittery magenta body paint with palm trees in the background.[7] The artwork was shot in Los Angeles by Sasha Samsonova whom the twins came across on Instagram.[8] The Veronicas cited Mystique, the human anatomy and aliens as inspirations for the cover.[3]


Joey Nolfi of Entertainment Weekly said "In My Blood" had a similar vibe to their 2012 single "Lolita". He described the track as, "a subtle banger prime for the summer season, with crystalline electronic production (and bongos!) accompanying a killer hook."[5] Mike Wass of Idolator called it "one of their best singles to date."[9]


"In My Blood" received three ARIA Music Awards nominations in 2016 for Best Group, Best Pop Release and Song of the Year.[10]
