On the back of a support slot with Wolf Alice in Dundee and The Jesus & Mary Chain in Glasgow, The Van T’s continue their assault on the music industry with another killer track. Drawing you in through their now trademark surf-rock, feedback-laden guitar segments, accented beautifully by glorious harmonies and killer choruses, The Van T’s continue to illustrate why they are considered to be the most exciting young band in Scotland.

Premiere’s on the likes of Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio Introducing show, Noisey, Consequence of Sound, Clash Magazine, The Line of Best Fit and Dorkwere followed by support slots with Yuck, Rat Boy and Honeyblood. The band also appeared at festivals T in The Park, where they headlined the BBC Introducing Stage, Electric Fields, Wide Days and Stag and Dagger. 2017 has seen the band continue to make their mark having supported The Jesus & Mary Chain in Amsterdam at the renowned venue Paradiso, played a support slot with Clean Cut Kid at London’s Scalafollowing this up with two packed shows at this year’s Great Escape.
