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
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."
