Artist to Watch: Vas Defrans

Living in Los Angeles, where it seems new folk or indie-pop bands are born on a daily basis, can make it easy to forget about the few rock bands, which occasionally emerge through the cracks. Vas Dafrans is one of these rock bands. Except they are not abashedly emanating in some secret, dark corner - they are claiming their space and spreading their experimental-rock roots from their hometown of North Hollywood, across Los Angeles county lines. Their sound? It’s a surge of high-energy, infused with uninhibited riffs and melodic vocals that are sure to erase any doubts you had about rock still being alive. If you weren’t able to check out their show at the Troubadour this past Saturday, you can still pick-up a copy of their latest self-titled EP on itunes. - Tuesday Phillips
