VANT have enjoyed an incredible introduction with shows as support to the likes of Royal Blood and Hinds, as well as receiving extensive airplay from BBC Radio 1, XFM and 6Music for their debut tracks ‘Parasite’ and ‘Do You Know Me?’. Their next move comes with the new single ‘The Answer’ which impacts and is available to download and stream now.
‘The Answer’ is an onslaught of fiery dynamics and garage rock attitude. It maintains the chaotically controlled spirit of VANT’s previous releases, but also takes a different approach with a powerful instrumental intro that still gives vocalist/guitarist Mattie Vant’s musical arrangement time to flourish.
Lyrically, ‘The Answer’ deals with how the media portrayal of an atrocity can influence public and therefore governmental opinion. It also questions the UK’s current position within global politics.

Badself formed in 2014 with ex-members of Future Kings of Spain and Bambi. This power trio delivers a blend of rhythmically angular and melodically obscure alternative rock with expert precision. Sonically, you can expect bright sparkling guitars, low down dirty bass and solid drums with vocal showers throughout.
Their thunderous debut album ‘The Three Daughters of Mara’, recorded with Ronan McHugh (Def Leppard) is out now.
Karl Hussey – Vocals/Guitar
Dan Barry – Bass Guitar
Bryan McMahon – Drums
