About vetusta morla
vetusta morla is a Spanish rock band formed in the late 90s, with the aim of going beyond the stereotypes of that genre. They work adding sounds and rhythms that come from outside the rock tradition, but keeping the core, not falling into pastiche. Their live shows are forceful and intense. Their lyrics prefer image suggestion to unequivocal messages and invite the listener to participate actively. These are the artistic cornerstones of their music. Both contribute to a feeling of belonging that grows in their listeners: that he or she is also part of that creation and is directly involved in the musical experience (which, of course, actually happens).
