Already picking up comparisons to the mighty And So I Watch You From Afar, Adebisi Shank, Maybeshewill and Explosions In The Sky, VASA’s explosive and frantically inventive music goes one step further and turns sub-genre conventions and clichés on their head with a healthy injection of Celtic-influenced roots and a frenetic, dance-y infectious energy that's hard to refuse.

Since forming in October 2011, the quartet have seen a rush of support from the likes of The Independent, Clash Magazine, The Skinny, Goldflakepaint, PROG, The National Scot and huge swathes of the post-rock community, completed several UK tours as well as completing their maiden Europe tour and have played several support dates with heavyweights such as Deafheaven, Maybeshewill, This Town Needs Guns, Brontide and Black Peaks plus appearances at ArcTanGent Festival, T in The Park, A Carefully Planned, Wickerman Festival and StrangeForms Festival.

Press:

"One of the most exciting, dynamic instrumental bands in the UK...riffs the size of King Kong's scrotal baskets" - The Independent

"Blistering post-rock with shades of math intricacy…if they keep this up, they're going to be huge" – Clash Magazine [8/10]

“Colours rawks wholeheartedly…constructing scores of mountainous riffs and fleet-fingered breaks then stitching them
together at head-spinning volume” – The Skinny [3/5]

"Captivatingly expansive and brilliantly immediate; a thunderous, exploratory and, at times, beautiful concoction of dark
and light" – Goldflakepaint

“The 21st Century is proving to be a brave new world for instrumental rock music and Vasa are one of the bands at the forefront of the new world, colonizing this untamed land for the rest of us to enjoy.” – Fecking Bahamas

“A simply terrific record…should be marked down as one of 2015’s greatest and most welcome surprises. You’ll be hard pressed
to find an instrumental album as engaging or downright fun as this all year.” – Already Heard [4.5/5]
