Premiere: New Single from Blue Vervain

Blue Vervain by Jordan Galiano


North Jersey four-piece, Blue Vervain, describe themselves as a "mood rock" band. Started by singer / guitarist Jon Khan (former Morningside Lane) as a solo project in the summer of 2018, Blue Vervain grew into their current incarnation with the additions of James Pawson (bass), Nikki Marroccoli (keys), and Ori Yekutiel (drums). They take their name from a flower used as an alternative remedy for anxiety and depression; and Blue Vervain say that they strive, through their music, to provide a sort of alternative remedy of their own to those who may be struggling.

Blue Vervain recently joined the roster of NJ's Mint 400 Records, and their debut LP, Wounds, is due on September 6th. Today, we're premiering the album's first single, "Cycle."

"Cycle" starts off with some subdued guitar and vocals from Khan, before building to a cathartic outro. The song brings together elements of emo, alt rock, and indie which makes for an appropriately moody result.

Blue Vervain will be performing at this weekend's Jersey Shore Festival in Seaside Heights on May 18th. They've also got a few summer dates lined up which you can check out below. Pre-orders for Wounds will start on August 9th.
