Scottish Instrumental Post-Rock Quartet Stream Debut Album In Full Following Premiere With The Independent

Out Now Via Black Sheep Records

What the press are saying about ‘Colours’:

“Really shaping up into something, and if post-rock’s your thing, then this is unmissable” – PROG
“One of the most exciting, dynamic instrumental bands in the UK.” – The Independent
“Blistering post-rock with shades of math intricacy” – CLASH

“Molten, mathy soundtracks for the most action-packed movies never filmed” – The Skinny

“This will blow your socks off” – The National Scot

Fresh from a run of EU headline tour dates, Glasgow instrumental post-rock quartetVASA are extremely proud to be streaming their debut album ‘Colours’ in full, following an exclusive premiere with The Independent last week. Released today via Black Sheep Records, the album is available on 12″ vinyl and digital download which can both be purchased here.

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.

Since forming in October 2011, the quartet have seen a rush of support from the likes of The Independent, Clash Magazine, The Skinny, Goldflakepaint, PROG, The National Scot and huge swathes of the post-rock community give way to tour dates with post-rock heavyweights such as Black Peaks, Deafheaven, Maybeshewill, This Town Needs Guns and Brontide plus appearances at T in The Park andWickerman Festival, with further live appearances scheduled and TBA.

‘Colours’ is out now via Black Sheep Records.
