Pictures of Vernon
Indie rock in 2017 either attempts to surmount unease, or at least make
sense of it. For Pictures of Vernon, the two years between The Days are
Just Packed – an elastic, snarling set of tracks toeing the line dividing
garage demo from well-intentioned debut – and their self-titled follow-up
were full of shifting moments. The North Carolina trio, headed by primary
songwriter Anderson Ragan, balanced evolving their higher education and
songwriting craft, only to channel that tug-of-war – and their eventual
departures from college – into tense, concise lyricism. "Krelboyne Picnic"
chronicles Ragan's dropout year with frantic bursts of throbbing guitar,
while "This is Water" experiments with glittering pedal play and an ominous
rhythm section to close out the action with a muted coda. Rather than
explode their statements past their breaking points, the sentiments here
are unleashed in measured time, even with "Public School" and its shrieking
vocals finding their blown fuse too soon. As five songs that meld together
emo, post-hardcore, and of course indie rock's nebulous platform, Pictures
of Vernon has painted a new portrait, and it's one that allows them to move
past their own problems.
