Vajra's live show is like a cathartic punch in the face.
New York, New York (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
NYC art / progressive rockers Vajra announce Spring dates in celebration of the release of "Inside The Flame (Rapid Oxidation Mix)". The mix was arranged by 3 Years Hollow's Jose Urquiza and mixed by Jordan Tischler of Digital Bear Entertainment. It is set for release on this Friday on the Vernal Equinox (Friday, March 20, 2015), the same day that the band kick's off their Spring shows at The Mercury Lounge in NYC.
Vajra's music is hauntingly dark and hypnotic weaving Eastern Indian themes with melodic, progressive rock creating foreboding and mysterious lullabies. Creem Magazine states, Vajra marries the sound of eastern India with the abrasive, melodic infrastructure of progressive rock. Since playing their first show in 2011, Vajra has been captivating the NYC music scene with their eyebrow raising theatrical antics and uncanny sound. [Their] live show is like a cathartic punch in the face."
Their single "Blind (Blood Mix)" was in rotation at terrestrial commercial rock stations including: WOBG/Fairmont, WKKI/Celina, KZND/Anchorage, KEYJ/Abilene, WGBF/Evansville, KJML/Joplin, KGRR/Dubuque, WOBJ/Fairmont, KAZY/Cheyenne, KFML/Little Falls, KHAD/Upton, KHWL/Altus, KMZK/Grand Junction, KOZE/Lewiston, KQDI/Great Falls, KROW/Cody, KRWN/Farmington, KTED/Casper, KTRX/Ardamore, KXPZ/Las Cruces, WECL/Eau Claire, and WPNT/Villa Rica and it was added to SiriusXM's hard rock Octane Channel over the Summer.
"Blind (Blood Mix)" also charted at #37 on the Under the Radar Music Chart and was #1 for two consecutive weeks (10/6/14 &10/13/14) at Rockfile Radio Ice. Blind is also being played at a host of other internet radio stations including Radio 106, WPNY, Rock 939 and Hard N Heavy Radio.
The Big Takeover Magazine describes Vajra's music as, "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."
According to Progression Magazine, Vajra's music is, "an innovative nexus of melodic prog, world beat and hypnotic eastern vibes, delivered with dramatic panache."
