Untouched – The Veronicas
Today we look at a track that was released by the Australian duo The Veronicas in the early noughties. It was a single that was actually the first song that they debuted in American and the United Kingdom and for that it actually did pretty well. Untouched was released on the 8th December 2007, it was written by Toby Gad, Jessica Origliasso and Lisa Origliasso. It was released under the record label of Sire.
The track, was from their second studio album Hook Me Up which was also released in 2007. The genre of the track is electropop and power pop, with critics comparing the track to songs by Avril Lavigne and P!nk. The track also had a B-Side song which was called Hollywood.
Considering it was their first single in the UK and the USA, it did relatively well – in the UK it went into the charts at number 8 and in the US it went into the Hot Billboard at number 17. It also did well in other charts and went to number 1 in Ireland, number 9 in New Zealand, number 2 in Australia and number 5 in Canada just to name a few.
I always liked this song, I found it incredibly dramatic and had this really heavy, addictive beat to it. It was very different to other tracks that were around at the time and I think that is why it did well in the UK. I came across this article on Buzzfeed that may give you an idea about the song too.
