The Vernes





Weekend Warrior, March 23 - 25

Sundays are usually a good day to wind down and reset for the workweek, but if you are looking to squeeze in some more sweet tunes before you return to your studies or that job you should have left months ago, head on over to Johnny Brenda’s! You’ll find the beautifully melodic garage-pop of The Vernes kicking off the festivities with a new batch of tunes, helping you to forget the trials and tribulations of life. However, if you are ready to delve deep into the corners of your mind, the contemplative tunes of indie darling Abi Reimold will surely help to stir up some emotions that you just might not have known were there. All this rad local support will be leading the way to the synth-pop concoctions of Nawlins duo Video Age. (Abi Reimold Photo by Bob Sweeney) – H.M. Kauffman

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. Take a listen to The Vernes, and get to know our new Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner a little better HERE! (Photo by Cara Stefchak)
