The Van T’s are another band that make regular appearances in my track selections. Maybe not as frequently as Fontaines DC, but it’s quality not quantity. I first picked a song by them, ‘Fresh Meat‘, back in 2017. Then I chose their song ‘Control‘ last year.
And now they’re back. One of Glasgow’s finest, gearing up hopefully towards a full debut album. My wife walked into the kitchen as I was playing this and assumed I was listening to The Jesus and Mary Chain. So that should give you an idea of the fuzzy guitar production on this, the white noise and sweet underlying harmonies. The vocals are always more upbeat than Mary Chain though, they tend to soar a little more. But it’s nice that a contemporary Glasgow band are keeping the city’s traditions alive.
Happy Glasgow Thursday. Here’s to many more.
