Australian Gold Coast blues rockers The Vernons have just shared the video for pensive new single ‘She’s Not Mine’.

This break-up reflected track leads on a soft and atmospheric intro before it explodes with killer guitar riffs and a beat that build up as the song progresses. There’s an engaging, retro fuelled rhythm that grabs you and wants you to listen more, while the lyrics are cool and effortless.

The clip paints a visual picture of love gone wrong, though as frontman Jonny Nyst explains, this isn’t your ordinary break-up song. “A break-up can spur a rollercoaster ride of emotions and that’s really what the song is all about. One minute you can feel completely regretful and the next minute you can feel utterly betrayed. ‘She’s Not Mine’ really emphasises the darker times of all of that.” There are two earlier EPs, predictably titled Volume I and Volume II, both of which garnered positive reviews and had a good run on iTunes. One of the songs from Volume II, To The Sky, won a Queensland Music Award earlier this year. The track Snap My Fingers from our third EP, Snap, was released early August .

Resembling a sound not too unlike Catfish and the Bottlemen, the band will follow their three EPs (which includes the Queensland Music Award winning track ‘To The Sky’)
with a new EP #4 on the horizon for early next year.

The band is Jonny Nyst on lead vocals and some guitar; James Nikiforides on lead guitar and backing vocals; and Hugh Tait on bass and backing vocals. Just now we’re working with a guest drummer and sometimes other guest musicians when we perform or record.
