Vera Jones has many talents. In 2012 she graduated from the London Center of Contemporary music and then got handpicked into the “Onebeat Program” sponsored by the UK Department of State. Here, she participated in a two week workshop in Florida and toured the East Coast of the US. Her reputation grew, and her band, the Vera Jones Experiment won the Indie/Alternative album of the year at the Hungarian Grammy’s, increasing her popularity further. The band have a new song out, “Kesergés”.
The song is full of spooky and dark electronica sounds. The vocals convey a big atmosphere and are layered over hypnotic beats. They take you on a calming journey. The vocals combine with the mystical guitar, relaxing the listener. The visuals are stunning in the video, showing some amazing and peaceful fields. I can imagine myself being very spaced out to this. A great find, and a song which showcases the band’s talents very nicely.
