Bio

Minor Premiers are yet to celebrate their 1st birthday, yet they’ve been wasting no time churning out their unique brand of mid-fi indie-rock.

The band teamed up with producer Wayne Connolly (Cloud Control, The Preatures) in 2017 to record a bunch of songs at The Shed (Violent Soho). These sessions were buoyed by frontman Luke receiving 2016’s Billy Thorpe Scholarship for emerging songwriters.

Minor Premiers 1st three singles found their way onto Spotify’s most loved and popular indie playlists, local most-played charts, Unearthed Radio even a sports doco in the US. They’re 2 headline shows were sellouts and they've landed a number of festival slots and supports for Bugs, Totty, PLTS and more.

The calibre of their songs, together with their powerful live shows, continue to push Minor Premiers into the realm of independent bands that are turning heads in 2018.
