The singing sisters recently caught up with Times Online to chat about their rise to success in the music industry. They shared, “We were being influenced by things such as electro-pop, which, at the time in America, was an underground thing â€” there was no Katy Perry or Lady Gaga at that point. But when we expressed a desire to do that, they were, like, â€˜No, no, we want to hook you up with the guy who did Rihannaâ€™s stuff.”
The Veronicas continued, “It wasnâ€™t easy at all. We were told that none of our songs were hits, and they wouldnâ€™t get released in America. A couple of months after it was released as we wanted it, the biggest station in New York picked Untouched up. And then it sold 1.5m downloads. Thatâ€™s embarrassing for them.”
Jess and Lisa performed their hit single, “Untouched” on the program. Their album, Hook Me Up, is available in stores and at Amazon.com now.
