Vasudeva is an instrumental rock band from New Jersey. Formed out of a lasting high school friendship, the tight-knit trio creates seemingly effortless, beautifully dynamic soundscapes, locked in by a firm backdrop of unrelenting grooves, while drawing on their post-rock, ambient, lo-fi, and electronic forms all in equal measure.

Written from late 2014 to late 2015 after returning home from their first European tour, the band’s second full-length album, No Clearance, is the product of countless hours of listening, observing, tweaking, and evolving, honing in an impressive spread of recording techniques and production styles, while redefining genres in the process.

Self-recorded with an array of colors in their sonic palette, effects pedals, tape players, samplers, drum machines, and a Rhodes piano were just a few of the components used in the making of No Clearance (mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden), capturing Vasudeva at their rawest, yet most refined form to date.

The band’s name, coined from the character in Hermann Hesse’s 1922 novel, Siddhartha, was chosen for his quiet, yet profound and eye-opening role in the story, similar to the band’s own deliberate pace and strong musical dynamic. Now, with the release of No Clearance and a year full of touring ahead, the band certainly has something worth hearing.
The now Fort Collins-based songwriting project of Jack McManaman and Adam Gilsdorf, Quentin sets out to create vulnerable, empathetic music before anything else. Quentin explores a wide range of atmosphere, intimacy, and dreaminess in their music, with as much love and meticulousness being placed in the loud as well as the quiet — the sludgy dense as well as the shimmering sparse. The dream pop and math rock-influenced band creates a unique coalescence of inventive, layered guitar playing and drumming behind extremely melody-driven, melancholic lyrics sung by

"Fully embracing their shoegaze sides, I Turned Away is dark, dreamy, and still peppered with some of the tricks they learned as students at one of the leading jazz schools in the nation" - Bandwagon Magazine

"Cavilier 20-somethings, gluttonous for 21st century gloom, will identify with Quentin’s sound. If, however, you are immune to the human condition, and somehow immutably content, you can also find a lot to love about Quentin" - Bandwagon Magazine

vocalist Arianna Snow. The band’s entire sound is carefully curated to provide strong emotional payoff to the listener, whether they are lost in the reverb-drenched guitars or hit by the emotional imagery of the lyrics. Auspiciously playing venues around Northern Colorado and Denver since late 2016, Quentin has been garnering more and more success and released their first two singles in the Fall of 2017. Having recently wrapped up recording their debut LP at Mighty Fine Studios in Denver, Quentin released I Turned Away on April 1st, 2018.
