"Biting My Tongue" is the first single, since last year's 'Think Of Me' and 'Ugly' offering, from Australian Sisters The Veronicas as they gear up to release their first album in six years. It was released on 3 July 2020 by Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Lisa Origliasso, Jessica Origliasso, David Musumeci & Anthony Egizii wrote the track and It was produced by DNA. “While the release date for ‘Human’ is yet to be specified, it is expected sometime this year and is set to be the follow up to the band’s self-titled third studio album, which spawned the hit singles ‘You Ruin Me’ and ‘If You Love Someone’. Radio has usually been really slow jumping on board with songs from The Veronicas, but have given them plenty of airplay across the Hit & KIIS Network around Australia & some airplay on Nova network & Grant Broadcasters. "Biting My Tongue" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #14.

The Veronicas revealed via social media that July 3rd would bring with it the release of their latest single, set to be taken from their forthcoming record, Human.

Though the duo – comprised of sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso – haven’t released a full-length album since 2014’s self-titled affair, they’ve been prolific nonetheless, sharing a number of singles in that time. One of these songs – 2016’s “In My Blood” – gave the pair their third chart-topping single in Australia, though no word of a new album was shared in that time.

Now, with HUMAN set to be released at some point in the near future (no formal release date has been revealed as yet), The Veronicas have shared “Biting My Tongue” as what is ostensibly the first single from the record.

An exuberant pop anthem which captures the pair at their absolute best, “Biting My Tongue” serves as a taste of the next chapter in the life of The Veronicas.

“‘Biting My Tongue’ is about saying everything you’ve been holding back,” Lisa and Jess explain of the track. “When desire sits on the tip of your tongue and you don’t know if you should share your feelings and risk it all, or hold it in and risk never knowing.

“We’ve both taken risks in love. We are naturally curious people. I think we would always feel it was a tragedy to love someone and to allow fear of their reaction stop us from knowing if they might feel the same. So writing this was like a confession pouring out.

“Most people have that one moment that they either took the risk, or lost the chance… either way, everyone is changed by that moment.”

Co-written with Australian songwriting and production team David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii, aka DNA Songs (who are also behind singles such as “You Ruin Me” and “In My Blood”), The Veronicas are set to perform their new single for the first time on The Voice this Tuesday, July 7th.

The single’s release also comes alongside a trailer for its accompanying music video, which sees The Veronicas taking on directorial duties.

The Veronicas’ “Biting My Tongue” is out now via Sony Music Entertainment Australia.

"I'm Doing Fine" is a song by Austtralian recording artist Mike Waters . It was released on 26 June 2020 by Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Mike Waters, David Musumeci & Anthony Egizii wrote the track and the track was produced by DNA. Radio has really jumped on board with this song with Mike Waters gaining plenty of airplay across the Hit network & some regional radio networks around Australia. "I'm Doing Fine" is this Weeks Greatest Gainer moving from #93 to #65.

 

Following his recent signing to Sony Music, Mike Waters is starting a whole new chapter in his solo music. After working tirelessly behind the scenes writing songs with some of your favourites artists like Louis Tomlinson, Demi Lovato and Mitch James, the Melbourne singer-songwriter is finally stepping back into the spotlight.

 

‘I’m Doing Fine’ is the first candid taste of his new sound, as he opens up vulnerably about mental health and toxic masculinity in contemporary society. Taking the listener on a journey of self reflection, he tries to tell everyone he’s fine and that his thoughts aren’t eating him alive, when in reality he’s not doing fine. He learns that he just needs to open up to people and find transparency because we are all human and the only way we can really grow is by opening up.

 

“The only?way I know, only way I was ever shown, was how to deal with this alone” he sings during the pre-chorus as he sets the preface for growing up with the ideology that “real men don’t show emotions”. So as he glides through the song, his mindset shifts and he finally unravels to his close friends. “Don’t let the weight on my shoulders keep on weighing me down, for one minute longer. I’m so tired. So can you help me? I’m not doing fine” he admits.

 

Contrasting the heaviness of the lyrics with a fulfilled pop production, the song falls into anthemic territory and has a similar sound to ‘Mercy’ by Shawn Mendes and ‘Waves’ by Dean Lewis. Beginning with just the simple strumming of an acoustic guitar the song then builds with big drums and atmospheric pop beats.

 

‘I’m Doing Fine’ is a strong debut for Mike Waters following his signing to Sony Music as it foreshadows a huge growth in his artistry from his independent days and from all the songwriting he’s been doing overseas with other artists.
