Originally founded in 2015, Våras has evolved from the ambient solo project of Alex Tracy-Gould to a full sized ensemble of big, brooding guitars, swelling strings and soft whispers from their influences such as Sigur Rós, Fleet Foxes, Russian Circles, Hey Rosetta! and Mogwai. Using their large arsenal of musical knowledge and tools, Våras seeks to embody the various emotions, moments and memories that come with the human experience. Through means of numerous complex layers all the way down to a single instrumental moment, Våras is sure to stir the emotions of their audience. Aiming to be more than simply songwriters, the band often combines their music with themed lighting and background video to add to the experience that is Våras live.

Since a major overhaul of the project’s direction and members in July 2016, Våras has played to resounding approval for audiences, including the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival and FEST FORWARD.
