Bio

Social On The Veranda are a four-piece indie rock band from Melbourne. They formed in 2017 when Irish-born songwriter Conor Bermingham met guitarist Ben Rohy and drummer Jesse Porter. They began writing songs together and recruited bassist Damon Brammall after meeting him at Box Hill University. SOTV have built a strong local following through playing a number of live shows over the past 12 months. They have played The Workers Club Fitzroy, Northcote Social Club and supported US band ‘We The Kings’ at Arrow on Swanston. The band have been handpicked to support British India on the east coast leg of their 'Nic The Poet’ tour in 2018. ‘Breathe’ is the band’s first single.

Soaring strong start with those guitars. They never lose it's energy too. They just power through. It brings this really uplifting spirit to the track.

I love the chorus of this song. The whole thing is real tight and really satisfying to listen to. Hope to hear more soon.

Every now and then you catch a band live and think "these are going to be Big". SOTV will be- no doubt- and I reckon they'll do it in their own way and on their own terms.

Every now and then you catch a band live and think "these are going to be Big". SOTV will be- no doubt- and I reckon they'll do it in their own way and on their own terms. I caught them live supporting British India (and heard about this site from them) and wasn't disappointed. The front man is obviously loving what he is doing, and his passion for the music flows out among the crowd and takes hold.There are moments of pure originality in their playing and lyrics and energy, with a little hint in places to influences that give you an idea of their skillset. I reckon you'd be hard pressed to find a legend that they couldnt stand toe-to-toe with had they the notion and opportunity to give it a go.

Looking forward to the next show. Catch them if you can, worth it.
