Do you love a good tune, something so catchy you can’t help but grin from ear to ear? Then raise three cheers for The Veras, four fellas making music with just that reaction in mind. Inspired by all the great music from the 50s right up to about 5 minutes ago, especially Glam Rock, Punk, New Wave, 90s Indie and BritPop, The Veras are bringing back the buzz of going to see your favourite band live. These four fellas have been gracing musical stages together in another project for over a decade, but now’s the time for The Veras!
The Veras just managed to get their first two live shows in before the pandemic restrictions kicked in, the first supporting Glen Matlock & Earl Slick, the last being at 229 Club, London, to a very appreciative audience. This gig was also the launch event for their four-track CD EP ‘Sevens & Nines’, which has since received much airplay and music publication reviews.
The Veras second release, although there’s more to come, here we finally catch two tracks spread across two continuos grooves set in vinyl. Side A fires up with ‘Paper Cup Telephones’, with Side B serving ‘If You Ain’t Got Love’.
This is the sound of the future, with the past and the present in mind!
The twenty-fifth release on the Spinout Nuggets label, this release will be available via www.spinoutproductions.com/shop/, the band and all good musical outlets (digital also available).
Give ‘em a whirl!
