Jejune

Jejune is the name of a band which formed in the mid-90s at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. The band has been commonly identified with the emo genre, particularly the late-90s “indie emo” scene. The three founding members, Arabella Harrison (Bass/Vocals), Joe Guevara (Guitar/Vocals) and Chris Vanacore (Drums), met while studying at the college.

Jejune is the name of a band which formed in the mid-90s at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. The band has been commonly identified with the emo genre, particularly the late-90s “indie emo” scene. The three founding members, Arabella Harrison (Bass/Vocals), Joe Guevara (Guitar/Vocals) and Chris Vanacore (Drums), met while studying at the college. The band relocated to San Diego, California, in 1997.

Many of Jejune’s songs fit the construct and sensibilities of the emotional hardcore genre (aka emo). Intimate verses of melodic, melancholic reflection ascend to choruses of extreme musical and emotional intensity (a comparative blitz of noise.) Among similar bands of the time, Jejune’s use of blended male/female vocals and pop sensibility helped to make them stand out.

The band’s earliest songs consisted of a more punk rock style, such as on their first single, “Drive by Negly”. The band continued recording demos with the expectation of eventually recording their debut album, but ending up issuing a compilation of those demos as their first album, Junk, in 1997. A split single with Jimmy Eat World, including the song “Early Stars”, was released in early 1998.

Later in 1998, the band released their second album, This Afternoon’s Malady, which marked a notable departure from the band’s more indie rock leanings on their debut. « hide
