It has been an absolutely huge 12 months for THE VANNS. With the release of their debut album Through The Walls, the South Coast band firmly cemented their identity as one of Australia’s most formidable names on the indie rock circuit. Now, with a new decade already kicking into gear, The VANNS announce they’re getting back out on the road this Autumn and to boot, they’re releasing a special new version of album track, Jules Said.
The new single, written by Jimmy Vann and Cameron Little expands upon the original album version, with the band hitting the studio with Grammy nominated, ARIA winning producer Adrian Breakspear (Gang of Youths, Pharrell Williams) to bring this new version of Jules Said to life. “Jim and I wrote ‘Jules Said’ in my bedroom in under an hour. It was the first song we finished writing for Through The Walls. We were doing a lot of writing on Logic and trying to come up with ‘cool sounds’ for a while, and then we went out to lunch and were like, ‘When we get back, let’s just try and write something with two guitars and no computer’.” Cameron Little
Earning acclaim from fans and throughout the industry, The VANNS embraced powerful melodies, driving guitar and songwriting strength with Through The Walls and as the reaction to the album went on to prove, the four-piece were definitely showing up and demonstrating long-lasting quality on record. Nabbing triple j’s Feature Album spot during Ausmusic Month 2019, rave reviews and fired up crowds across all dates of their Australian tour at the tailend of last year, The VANNS stepped further into the Australian music spotlight than before. Not ones to waste time, the band’s forthcoming tour dates are ready to keep the momentum going. “Really pumped to be heading back out on tour, especially doing other venues and towns we haven’t done in a while. Playing to a new crowd, some of whom may not have seen/heard the album songs live yet is super refreshing and can make a show feel unpredictable. That’s something I really love about touring and am excited to be a part of.” Andrew Banovich
