Veda Rays host Tuesday residency at Sunnyvale in February

Since premiering their first new track since 2014 here on the Deli this past September, Brooklyn's Veda Rays have been hard at work.  They released five song Shadow Side EP in November, as well as a second video for “False Coloured Eyes” (streaming below). In the video, the band is shown playing via a four way split screen, while lead vocalist James delivers his dramatic lyrical recitation through full screen edits.   The track hearkens back to the darker side of '80s second wave of post punk British bands, where synths and guitars merge with dark sounding, almost ominous vocals. The band will host a four night residency every Tuesday in February at Sunnyvale, where all the shows are completely free and feature many emerging NYC bands. In addition to the live performance the events will also feature photo & art exhibits, short film projections and spoken word performances. (photo by Julia Stibal) - Dave Cromwell

Debut Sun Opus LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The trio of Sun Opus recently shared its debut album Lucky Man. Person L compatriots Brian Medlin (Legendary Divorce), Charlie Schneider (The Elk Band), and Ryan Zimmaro (Vacationer) once again combine forces. The LP locks into a futuristic rock sound, as noise percolates around the perimeter. The immediacy of gritty guitar and cued danger meshes with limitless orientations of discovery as the music unfolds.
