Fresh from a tour with You Me At Six, VANT have sure hyped up their very own UK tour. They’ve got the look, the audience and the talent – now all they’ve got to do is put it into action with a headline show. The London four-piece have a unique take on indie rock, give or take a passing similarity to Catfish And The Bottlemen, putting their own slant on the genre with honest lyrics and energetic riffs.
Knowing what to do, and how to do it well, seems to be something that comes naturally to the band if their social media is anything to go by. It’s clear that the musicians care about social and political issues which make them ever so much more loveable. As well as using Twitter as a strong platform for keeping contact with their fans, the band have also spoken out on issues like Brexit and the US presidential debate. This stance informs the music too, with one of their tracks ‘Peace & Love’ addressing the wrongdoings in the world passionately. We can only wait to see what VANT will do next.
