Album cover artwork for The Veronicas with green vinyl record popping outYou’d think languishing in label hell for seven years through the late aughts would kill one’s career momentum, but The Veronicas powered through to deliver 2014’s self-titled coup de grace.

Seven years after that, the Origliasso sisters have built that momentum into a fever for new music, culminating as a split personality double album. The second half, Human, comes in July, but here on Godzilla they deliver all the muscle that implies. Savage guitars, curly dance anthems and schoolyard bops cover enough ground that it feels curated from dozens of ideas into a rock-solid cross-section of their best ones. Thank Godzilla we don’t have to wait another seven years for more.

Godzilla by The Veronicas is out May 28 on CD and green vinyl, via Sony.
