“...music that deserves to be played at ear-threatening decibels to as many people as possible.” - Noisey

"...packed with attitude..." - Dork
“...sounding big, drenched in feedback...”- Huw Stephens BBC Introducing
Four-piece surf rock band The Van T’s have released their fabulous reverb-drenched single Fun Garçon, out now via Bloc+Music and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
2016 has been a breakout year for the Glaswegians following the release of their EP A Coming of Age, which was acclaimed by influential members of the music press. The band secured premiere’s on Huw Stephens' BBC Radio Introducing show, Noisey, Consequence of Sound and Clash Magazine, as their name began to resonate throughout Europe to North America and beyond.
The Van T's have picked up exactly where they left off as they showcase their unlimited talents through the release of single Fun Garçon, which premiered exclusively on Dork. The track is now available to stream on The Van T's Soundcloud page.
Fun Garçon encapsulates all the great elements of a band who exude talent beyond their youthful demeanour; relentless guitar washes over the listener like a crashing wave, as the duel vocals of twin sisters Hannah (guitar, vocals) and Chloe Van Thompson (guitar, vocals) amplify the diner-like retro feel the song already has, fused together beautifully by the tight rhythm section headed up by Joanne Forbes (bass) and Shaun Hood (drums).
The release of Fun Garçon will complete what has been a wonderful year for the band. Having previously supported Honeyblood and Catholic Action in the last twelve months, they have since added stints with Yuck, Sunflower Bean and Rat Boy, who personally chose the band to play. The band followed these support slots by appearing at festivals such as T in The Park, headlining the BBC Introducing stage, Electric Fields, Wide Days and Stag and Dagger. They also picked up further press from the likes of The Scotsman, Beat Surrender, Backseat Mafia, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing Scotland, where they recently performed a superb live session, culminating in a nomination at this years Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
Fun Garçon by The Van T’s is out now via Bloc+Music and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
