Zeta June's first album, self-titled "Zeta June", released in September 2013. The album brings a blend of many styles and influences the band shares, and these influences show through the tracks on the record. The flow of the album showcases their ability to create a muisical flow in songs, and sounds. This a trait of Zeta June's that they showcase in their live shows that the album demonstrates well. The opening track, "Resume To Consume" captures the listener with a catchy dance groove, firm lyrics, and a punch in the hard rock style riff in the chourus. The feel of the album changes in the acoustic guitar, mandolin, ballad style track "Pick Up the Stones." A song that starts off with a soft guitar line, and heartfelt lyrics, gradually builds into a climax that leaving the listener with chills, and wondering what is next. The single off the album comes in track seven, "Without Caution". A funkier-disco style song, that has a hint of Red Hot Chili Pepper influence in the outro, and a Umphrey's Mcgee like breakdown, takes listeners on a roller coaster of sounds, and adds to the unique style of Zeta June.
As a result of these individual influences, their soundscape mixes elements of funk, blues, slap bass, classic and synth rock to form a truly sophisticated track.
