EDITOR’S NOTE: This series of posts reflects back on some of the best material to be released over the past few weeks. Each post with this heading is a part of this series. After this series has concluded regular coverage will resume.
Earlier this week, The Van T’s reminded everyone of their formidable strength with the rousing “Fun Garçon”, a sharp blast of pop-friendly basement punk. Scrappy, melodic, and incredibly forceful, “Fun Garçon” brings a shoegaze influence to the forefront and grounds itself with the swirling, reverb-soaked lead guitar line that dominates the proceedings.
Every decision the quartet makes on “Fun Garçon” propels the song forward, sending it blindly hurtling towards an inevitable moment of impact with reckless abandon. Riding a wave of excess adrenaline, The Van T’s draw power from sheer aggression and never look back at the terrain they’ve scorched. Unwieldy and wildly entertaining, “Fun Garçon” finds The Van T’s fully charged and ready for anything. With the momentum they’re building, it’s best to try to get on board, if only to avoid getting absolutely flattened.
Listen to “Fun Garçon” below and keep an eye on Bloc+Music for the November 25th release of “Fun Garçon”.
