Vernon Jane | HeARTbeat

Vernon Jane are a Jazz Punk band. They are a powerful presence live: an incredibly raucous, unhinged presence. The band strikes you with a wall of well-crafted, intertwined noise. For the untrained ear, it can be a lot of take in and make sense of. When they merge on a track; it’s rough, it’s loud, it’s angry.
