We are so thankful for SiriusXM's support. Being played on Octane is especially helpful in getting our music out there for people to hear, since we don't have a record label or management...yet.

"Blind", the new single by art-progressive rock ensemble, Vajra, was added to SiriusXM's hard rock Octane Channel. "We are so thankful for SiriusXM's support. Being played on Octane is especially helpful in getting our music out there for people to hear, since we don't have a record label or management yet," states band founder and vocalist Annamaria Pinna.
Vajra's blend of dark, melodic, progressive rock and Eastern Indian fusion is gaining attention since the release of their debut album 'Pleroma'.
The Big Takeover Magazine states, Vajra's music is, "sinister, sprawling, and stately featuring booming, tribal drums, ominous synths and lucent, spiraling guitars...[w]hat further sets them apart is the East Indian mysticism that pervades thanks to Pinna's hypnotic, Classical Hindustani-tinged singing."
Progression Magazine states that Vajra's music is, "an innovative nexus of melodic prog, world beat and hypnotic eastern vibes, delivered with dramatic panache."
"Pleroma has it all: drama, emotion, moving power ballads, captivating lyrics and catchy rocks songs with just enough dark edge and pop hooks to ensnare new fans." - Rick Jamm, Jamsphere Indie Music Magazine
The band is completing a round of Summer tour dates, and is currently is working on new material for their next album. Remaining Summer tour dates include:
8/22 Philadelphia, PA at The Liberty Musicfest
8/29-9/1 Pottstown, PA at Evolvefest
