Brooklyn-based producer Vandana creates haunting compositions that sit somewhere in the realm of left-field pop. She bookends her brooding vocals with otherworldly synth lines and deep, throbbing bass tones. Her work is heavily influenced and inspired by her journey from India to Brooklyn via London, which can be heard in the fusion of ancient Indian traditions and the abstract art of her adopted homes.

Last month, Vandana self released her latest EP, Nox Anima, a five-track outing that presented her moody and hypnotic vision via cascading melodies and poignant vocal lines.

This Saturday, June 10, Vandana will host a release party for the EP at New York’s Halcyon store from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. The event won’t be ticketed and space is limited, so it will be run on a first come basis. You can find more about the event on Vandana’s Facebook page.

In support of the release and Saturday’s event, Vandana has offered up EP cut “Raven Black” as today’s XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below. You can pick up Nox Anima here.
