Bio

Born in the shadows of a Kiama garage, influenced by the old school blues and today’s new indie genre, they formed The VANNS.
The VANNS began jamming in the early months of 2012 and went onto win the 2012 Red Bull Bedroom Jam, which scored them a gig with The Getaway Plan at the Sydney Hi-Fi, recording time in Melbourne with Jan Skubiszewski (Way Of The Eagle) and a set at HOMEBAKE 2012.

Recently they were the band chosen as the focus of Vivid’s Ideas session ‘Access All Areas – breaking new artists in 2013’, and have been receiving regular plays on Triple J Unearthed and FBi Radio.
The VANNS have have just come back from two summer east coast tours of Australia. Firstly with Tasmanian band, Chase City, which took them to Melbourne and Tasmania and secondly with Byron Bay locals, The Familiars, which stretched from Melbourne to Brisbane and was presented by Music Feeds and Tone Deaf.

The VANNS have been headlining shows in Wollongong and Sydney, and also supporting popular Australian artists such as Jinja Safari, Kingswood, Sticky Fingers and The Bamboos.​
2014 will see a lot of singles being released and also their second festival appearance at Party In The Paddock help in Tasmania with headliners such as Sticky Fingers, Kingswood, Stonefield and Kingfisha.

This year will see The VANNS releasing a lot more music and touring more of the country, while trying to balance all this with University studies.

These young dude...

These young dudes have good poppy tunes soaked into their skin. This one stops and starts with that cheerful guitar bounce everybody loves and the marimbas are a nice touch. Good things a'coming.
