Biography

Veda Rays are a Brooklyn-based alt. rock band formed in 2010 by Jim Stark & Jason Gates. The current line-up includes bassist Sam Palumbo & keyboardist James Dempsey. Citing influences ranging from Roxy Music and Magazine to The Chameleons and early REM, the band’s arty milieu is deeply informed by 70’s glam and 80’s post-punk. This, along with a penchant for minor-key melodies, dream-like atmosphere and all things noir, makes for something alluring. The band has been featured on such notable sites as Popmatters, My Old Kentucky Blog, Death and Taxes, Largehearted Boy, Consequence Of Sound, Sonicscoop. com, and The Big Takeover. Comparisons by various journalists have included bands such as Deerhunter, Spacemen 3, Pulp, The Walkmen, New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen, and more.
