Vanic will be headlining one of the world’s best nightclubs, Beta, in the heart of downtown Denver this coming Friday, January 20th. In celebration we are giving away tickets and a meet & greet for you and a friend.

The track’s gentle guitar riff and Katy Tiz’ belting vocals reminisce of The Pixies’ famous “Where Is My Mind,” and the organic percussion plays beautifully with the chiming arrangement.
Check out “Samurai” below, and stay on the lookout for more Vanic originals in the near future.
