Vanaprasta formed in December of 2008, and the Los Angeles/Silver Lake experimental rock quintet has already generated a swift buzz through their blood-stirring live act and critically acclaimed debut Forming the Shapes EP. The band recently earned an LA Times Top Pick, and examiner.com designated their forthcoming LP Healthy Geometry as one of the most anticipated albums of 2010.
Vanaprasta - Collin Desha, Steven Wilkin, Taylor Brown, Cameron Dmytryk, and Ben Smiley - traveled to Portland to record the bulk of their album over the summer and fall of 2009. The band is releasing Forming the Shapes EP as a precursor to these sessions on March 2nd. The 3 song EP showcases "their dramatic blend of churning rhythms, bright riffage and glowing imagery" (Kevin Bronson, buzzbands.la).
Vanaprasta's live shows and recorded tracks feature aggressive guitar interaction, abrupt shifts in tempo and time signature, tandem drumming, and soaring vocals. The band is influenced by various sounds, such as the bluesy monstrous riffs of Dark Side of the Moon to the slurred guitar of The Moon & Antarctica. Their sound also draws influence from the driving rhythms of Silent Alarm, the funk of bloodsugarsexmagik, and the raw three part guitarmonies from The Bends.
