VANDANA JAIN ‘MASK’: “IT COVERS ANGST, IRRITATION, GHOSTS…HOPE”
Check out ‘Mask’ by sultry Brooklyn-based graphic designer, turned performance artist Vandana Jain. The strong track is taken from her forthcoming debut album ‘Anti Venus’ due out 10/1.
On the alluring single Jain says: “It covers angst, irritation, ghosts, masked attitudes, self scrutiny and finally, there is hope”.
‘Mask’ is Jain’s follow up to her first single from the record ‘Ecstatic’ and her stunning video for ‘Men With Sticks’ directed by friend and fashion photographer Bon Duke.
That track was taken from Jain’s debut Vandamner EP.
The rave scene in London and Indian pop music lay beneath Jain’s emotive front and center vocal play.
Although the project is primarily a solo effort, live Vandana teams up with Yusuke Yamamoto, a New York based artist and musician.
Together they re-worked the set with live vocals over thick club beats and spontaneous loops for her monthly residency spot at East Village club NUBLU, as well as Brooklyn side mainstays like 285 Kent, Cameo Gallery and The Rock Shop.
