"... not unlike a few selections from the cult-favorite Minimal Wave Tapes anthology, before giving way to the Vangelis-meets-Portishead finale of “Nothing Of Consequence."
"Vandana Jain challenges the archetype of the female pop star with Anti Venus. Intelligent, dark, and alluring, Jain’s moody and heavy synth melodies on her debut are complemented by her lamenting vocals."
"And like her music — a tasteful fusion of synthesized, infectious bass lines and hypnotic yet primal tones — Jain’s personality is full of dimension and depth."
"Vandana's dance design on "Claw" is detailed through an assertive and delicate yin and yang of tempest fevered waters and pools of divine serenity."
"Jain's ability to use her vocals in a way that highlights the instrumentation and the overall balance ... work together to create a stand-out."
"The first single, “Ecstatic”, was inspired by Henry Miller opus Tropic of Cancer, and the idea of “being gripped by madness over a freak like creature… wanting to wholly consume and be consumed by him.” “Ecstatic” was recorded at Jain’s home studio and incorporates drone elements and field frecordings. Jain's synth-pop style leans toward the experimental and post-punk, with electronic glitches folded seamlessly into the music and a creeping, noir feeling to the vocals."
"Directed by her good friend, fashion photographer Bon Duke, the video is beautifully strange with the gorgeous Jain at the center of a few ghillie suits (a type of camouflage designed to resemble heavy foliage) which turns out to be surprisingly stylish."
"Brooklyn-based graphic designer turned experimental pop performer Vandana Jain premiered her visually striking new video for 'Men With Sticks' on PAPER MAG directed by friend and fashion photographer Bon Duke."

“i am obsessed with this girl! such a mesmerizing video i love you so much vandana!”
“I instantly found myself drawn to her impeccable style, dazzling exotic looks and with a complete triumvirate of a triple threat-her music. In addition to her enchanting visual appearance, Vandana’s life arouses an equal amount of fascination. Having grown up in India and later pursuing an education in Graphic Design in London, the striking musician now resides in New York City.”
