Aussie indie-rock band The VANNS were formed in 2013, starting life as a party band that found themselves becoming serious as local hype around them grew. With a series of releases under their belt – most recently 2017’s EP, ‘Shake The Hand That Picks The Fight’, the NSW quartet are now set to drop their brand new single, ‘How Was I Supposed To Know’.
Produced by Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Ali Barter, Alex Lahey), ‘How Was I Supposed To Know’ is one of the band’s most accomplished and commanding tracks to date. Whilst maintaining their trademark gritty riffs, The VANNS come through intertwining heavier themes with huge, melodic hooks and chord progressions that underlines their ambitions to break into the more mainstream consciousness in the UK and beyond.
Speaking on the track, singer and guitarist Jimmy Vann states: “It’s about the collapse of a relationship and the frustration, confusion and envy that comes along with seeing the one you love moving on easily in every way, whilst you’re still caught up in what was.”
