I first saw Vasudeva support the incredible Tides Of Man and while I knew nothing about them then, they showed bags of potential that I couldn’t wait to see develop. First record ‘Life In Cycles’ was decent, but didn’t capture the vibrancy of the band’s live performance but now, with their next record ‘No Clearance’, Vasudeva have flourished into a magnificent instrumental act.

From the review: “Once you allow ‘No Clearance’ to take hold of you, it’s impossible to let that embrace go. With so many layers and textures, it’s like a treasure hunt of melody that you can easily get lost in. Vasudeva have created a remarkable record that shows a true understanding of melody, harmony and restraint and puts them in the highest echelon of their genre.”
