From On the Verge of Being

About    Connect  

With the release of the full length album, Dallas, On The Verge Of Being brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush with progressive guitar work, soulful vocals, and addicting choruses, the record boasts that of indie rock anthems. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds them all together much like a concept album. Most importantly, the record never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from.The first single, “Chaotic”, is an upbeat folk pop classic. Complete with a dancing rhythm, and an almost punk rock attitude, the track seems to build and breathe as it plays on. “The song is about the first stages of a relationship. How all the endorphins make you sorta go crazy and you would literally do anything to be with that person. The feeling you get is sort of chaotic. describes feelings that everyone in the band has felt before. Some more than others, but still. Chaotic represents that stupid, irrational, insane, unbelievable, amazing drive to want to do anything for a person whom you love. Everyone knows this feeling and can connect with it, and we want to use this song as a bridge to connect with other people who listen to our music, “ explains songwriter Sophia Rana of the bands single. Although the single speaks volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where the band is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety. “The entire album is a compilation of songs written over our time in Dallas. To us, the single especially is about giving a voice to our own beliefs and feelings, and that’s exactly what this song does for us,” says drummer Hank Blackburn of the album and songwriting process. Hailing from Dallas TX, On The Verge Of Being began with its original members Hank, Matt, and Sophia in December of 2010. After performing live more often and writing new material, the band started getting settled into a sound and process all their own. It was more difficult to find gigs as often as they wanted to since they were all still high school students at the time. After going on a short hiatus, the decided they wanted to release something together. It was then the Dallas album was born. On The Verge Of Being has already played the stage at the legendary House Of Blues and continues to write new material all the time by collaborating from different places. The Dallas album is available for streaming and download on most major digital outlets and the band is currently planning a tour for Summer 2016 starting in Texas and working their way out from there.
