This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



Formed in 2013 by post-metal multi-instrumentalist Veronika Lee (who also plays in NYC-psych band, Janna's Dream), Vesaas is a solo project. "La Foret" is the first release from the upcoming EP "Cross of Lorainne." Lee started playing music at age 11 playing in Hole and Nirvana bands and writing songs with her sister. She still cites Kurt Cobain as a major influence but over the years has come to credit the French blackgaze band, Alcest, as her main motivation for creating. "I was casting extras for films and television shows through Paramount Pictures and CBS and I just wasn't being creative. I had to take a moment and realize where my heart was and Alcest really woke me up in that way. So now I write songs about broken hearts and Norway and wolves and trees...things that are always in my subconscious but things that the real world doesn't always give you time to think about." "La Foret" was recorded with Jeff Stieber, formerly of Brooklyn sludge band, Hull, on drums and mixed by Kevin Antreassian (current guitarist of Dillinger Escape Plan) and Scot Moriarty of Backroom Studios. "It wasn't an option for me not to record in Bushwick, Brooklyn where I live. I'm so inspired by the music I take in at places like Acheron and St. Vitus. I'm just constantly inspired by all these people creating amazing music regularly. So this is just my contribution."
