Think of popular music from the 1960s. If you grew up in that era, you would remember jamming along to bands from that time, collecting their memorabilia and attending their sold-out shows and concerts.
Even now, 50 years later, music has a profound effect. It’s all around us, so we’re bound to stumble upon an unheard-of band and discover their uniqueness.
How amazing would it be to listen to a new album by an indie band, and be reminded of the origins of modern-day contemporary music? Or, better yet, revisit the feel of your childhood vinyl collection on the radio?
Formed in Indianapolis, Indiana, rock quartet Veseria released RLTVTY, their third album, July 29, 2017. This group has toured across the U.S., performing live alongside KONGOS, Panic! At the Disco, AWOLNATION and Bad Company.
Music dearly loved in the previous generation was a bold of inspiration for this group – they combine newness and innovation with it. Taking the page out of the books of classic rock, folk, punk and blues, the stylings of husband and wife songwriting team Jen and Patrick Roberts, the founders of Veseria, are captivating.

RLTVTY leaves you guessing what 60s band Veseria drew inspiration from. When you listen to leading track Zenobia, there are Jefferson Airplane-like vibes scattered throughout. The official music video released last month matches the lyrics perfectly.
And Also is another track that reminds the listener of a golden age in music. The rhythm of the horns resembles eclectic bands from years ago. The guitar strumming by Jen Roberts, coupled with her strong vocals, is nearly identical to them.
The standout track of RLTVTY is First Law of Thermodynamics. It merges all the strengths Veseria has to offer, with regular guitar parts, drums and bass lines, followed by a hint of the banjo.
