Fusing elements of dark wave electronica with experimental pop, Vandana’s music embraces womanhood and otherness as if from inside the mouth of a cave. In her latest EP Nox Anima, the singer, producer and visual artist brings her insular and mysterious writing process to life via slow-dripping, throbbing synths and poignant vocal melodies creating an atmosphere that’s haunting and exotic.

Inspired by musical pioneers like Aphex Twin, Thom Yorke and Miles Davis as well as the vibrancy of Bollywood, the Gothicism of The Cure and of Fever Ray, Vandana also takes her cues from purveyors of subversion like Edgar Allan Poe, Lars Von Trier and Henry Miller.

Her journey from India to London to Brooklyn has influenced her otherworldly and self-assured material, which arrives steeped in the eccentricities of ancient Indian fables as well as in vehicles of abstract art and experimentation.
