Rating: ★★★★

It has been a long wait but on Friday VANT released their highly anticipated debut album ‘Dumb Blood’. Vant are setting the scene for contemporary indie rock by sharing light on current events such as politics in a non-drastic and edgy way.

Over the past year, VANT has been doing very well for vantthemselves from supporting well-known artists such as Biffy Clyro & Catfish and the Bottlemen to playing leading UK festivals.

A lot of the modern indie rock bands share stereotypical things in common such as an edgy lead vocalist with a raspy voice and loud guitar riffs, which VANT indeed have but it most definitely is not a bad thing. A huge thing about VANT’s unique persona which sets them aside from other rock bands is their views politics which are strongly put across on the new album.

“We live on a planet that has forgotten what the words ‘Peace & Love’ mean… [we]need to reconnect with their true meaning.”

The bands rock & indie influences such as Nirvana & The Clash are strongly shown throughout the record as the album has some 80’s/90’s loud rock nostalgia sounds.Though the band are not entirely influenced by musical artists, frontman Mattie Vant has said in interviews that he is more influenced by literature and film more than music or anything else.
