Vasa Reveal New Song


Glasgow instrumental post-rock quartet Vasa are pleased to share new track Poseidon’s Kiss . This is the latest cut to be taken from their debut album Colours set for release on 16th October 2015 and already being touted as one of the most anticipated post-rock debuts of the year. Check it out below!

Bassist John Niblock comments:
Poseidon’s Kiss is the last song on our album Colours and serves as a glimpse into how our band’s sound has evolved as well as a look into where we are progressing to as a unit. The track will come as a surprise to those who have been listening to us for the last few years as the lead up to the finale of the track can only be described as “dance-y” but there is still the usual crushing post-rock vibes that we are known for. Poseidon’s Kiss is one of our collective favourites on the album and is a track that we feel has a sound that encompasses not only the usual post-rock sensibilities but has a very genre-spanning feel to it. It was the perfect way to end our album Colours and we are immensely proud of it, as we are of the whole album.

Already picking up comparisons to the mighty And So I Watch You From Afar, Adebisi Shank, Maybeshewill and Explosions In The Sky, this explosive and frantically inventive album 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.
