Veda Rays are an alternative rock band whose style began as a modern extension of traditional forms of dream pop, shoegaze & post punk. The group has since developed a unique voice through several years of steadfast experimentation whilst filing through the ranks of the Brooklyn DIY scene. Analog synths, treated samples, and other varied electronic elements add an atmospheric richness. The orchestral flourishes and texturally nuanced sonics oft times broaden the scope unto sprawling heights or tighten the focus down to minimal depths. The lyrics and imagery often explore liminal spaces of abstraction and surreality, channeling subconscious impulses reacting to the present moment.  

The Veda Rays are a darkly inspiring spiral galaxy I get immersed in. This is art rock for a tougher crowd.” (David Weiss, founder/editor of  SonicScoop)
