INFO: Castaneda hails from the nestled hills of Los Feliz, California. The band consists of Vega on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Rob Derba on keys, Sasha Veneziano on drums, Dana Powers on bass and background vocals, and Warren Nelson on lead guitar. Together for less than a year, the five Los Angeles-based musicians were joined together from across the US (Boston/New York/San Francisco) by inimitable forces and a nexus of relationships. For the five guys, the common goal became simple: to create a new transmittable and distinguished sound that integrates the driving rhythms and haunting electronic rock-and-roll essence of the past with the future.
