Shilpa Ray is an American rock band from Brooklyn, New York with a blues punk sound, led by singer-songwriter Shilpa Ray. Her music has been compared to Blondie, The Cramps and Screamin' Jay Hawkins and her singing has been compared to the style of Patti Smith, Nick Cave and Ella Fitzgerald. Ray is notable for combining an Indian harmonium with a "big-voiced blues-rock howler" vocal approach. The band signed a record contract with Northern Spy Records and has toured internationally.
A Deer A Horse
With rave reviews from the likes of the AV Club, Impose Magazine, and the Village Voice, this “moody, searing guitar rock” has been described as “an unwaveringly focused and ferocious sound” akin to “the Melvins turning in a pop song”. Either way or all ways, Rebecca Satellite’s arresting vocals resonate against controlled and contorted guitars which threaten to gain such heat that they burn the eclipse into your retna.
Self described as “hot dirt pop ocean rock old soul short shorts” Pleistocene is brilliantly melodic shoegaze pop made for the punk-rock-sock-hop of your dreams
Contemplative indie rock with a western twinge warm enough to make you croon ‘til the cows come home
