The Vernes

New Music Video: "Summer's Gone" - The Vernes

Reflectively serenading pleasant memories, The Vernes' video for “Summer’s Gone,” directed by Cody Kussoy, captures a behind-the-scenes encapsulation of touring life. Merging elements of traveling, scenery, silliness, performing etc., it’s a playful, mellow daydream temporarily pulling one out of this deep freeze. Warmth is right around the corner, and the band’s second album is in the works.

New The Vernes LP Available for Streaming & Download

Recorded in their basement during 2016, three sets of singles and an EP succinctly wrapped in a cohesive package, that’s The Vernes' self-titled debut album. The quintet locates a whimsical, drifting, lo-fi air that can scorch despite their penchant for breezy conditions. You can catch them performing next in Philly on Wednesday, March 22 at Boot & Saddle with American Trappist and Stef Chura. (Photo by Jamison Pinkert)

New Single: "The Curious Cat's Eyes" - The Vernes

“The Curious Cat’s Eyes,” the latest installment from The Vernes, can be heard in 2 parts below. The first captures a more straight-ahead, downhill variation, as percussion clears a path, flanked by the steady, cruising ring of guitar and the vocal narrative unfolds in a leisurely jog, before pushing the pace. The second finds keys/synth in the forefront, taking on more of a mind-wandering, head-in-the-clouds aesthetic. Either way, we’re onboard. Catch the band alongside Sonnder, Stadium Armory, and Very Bad Vibes this Friday, January 20 at The Fire!

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: The Vernes

The Vernes came together because its members lacked “anything else going on.” So guitarist Fabian Mera and bassist Robert Sesma took what sounds like a ridiculously long trip on a Greyhound bus, from Oakland to New York City, to come stay in frontman Matthew Gragg’s apartment. NYC didn’t turn out to be the “right fit” for them, which is lucky for us. Together, with Pat Degan on drums, the garage-pop foursome is part of the welcomed migration of talented, young artists continuing to flow into our City of Brotherly Love.

New Track: "Frozen Lakes" - The Vernes

As the sun starts to fade into the horizon, a delicate guitar pattern still radiates in The Vernes' new single “Frozen Lakes”. While darkness appears imminent, those warm, yearning vocals coast along, guided by the steady pull of percussion and stabilized by joyous backing harmony. Hide behind the comforting veil of shade, and soak in those fading rays.
