SIX QUIX WITH THE VANNS

Having spent years on the road and in-studio, evolving and finessing an indie rock sound that has become synonymous with an irresistible live presence and charm, The VANNS have channeled all the lessons learned and talent grown into their much-anticipated debut album, Through The Walls. In the midst of the band’s biggest Australian tour to date, The VANNS new music throws down the gauntlet in presenting the band at the top of their powers. Released last month, the album is a defining mark for the group, who have fast become one of the most engaging and in-demand young rock bands out of the South Coast. Powered by soaring vocals and a shining coupling of guitars and crashing percussion, Through The Walls is the apex of The VANNS’ creative strength. Dutifully playing with tone and sonic balance, the album is an emotional trip demonstrating the songwriters’ strength for playing in both arena rock territory, and also stripping back to show off a more vulnerable side.

Produced by Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy) and mixed by Dawson and Chris Collins (Gang of Youths), Through The Walls has the hallmarks of a classic in time; a portrait of a young band taking strides in making music reflective of a variety of life experiences well lived. “Through The Walls is a physical and emotional barrier within a relationship. The album explores the miscommunication and distance between someone you love or loved. The album cover is my father, the picture being taken 40 years ago, at the same age as me, and going through the same relationship problems. Today, the circumstances haven’t changed, but time has…”  The VANNS Jimmy Vann
