Introducing: The Van T’s

Earlier this week, I had the good fortune to make the e-cquaintance of Claire Lim who along with partner-in-crime Paul McCallum, co-founded A Badge of Friendship in 2009.

Their roster is choc full of the sort of bands like The Van T’s, who scratch my “melan-phoric” itch.

Prophetically, just a few days before hand, I had been lamenting the demise of Sons and Daughters – a sublime favourite of a band who sadly called it quits in 2012.

One of the many bands to have already caught my attention, “The Van T’s are the West of Scotland 4-piece comprised of Chloe Van Thompson (vocals, guitar), Hannah Van Thompson (vocals guitar), Joanne Forbes (bass) and Shaun Hood (drums).”

With appearances at T in the Park & Wickerman Festival and a support slot with impresarios Honeyblood, The Van T’s are already set for a bombastic 2015.

Their debut EP, ‘Laguna Babe’ will be released on 13th November by Bloc+Music.
