Van Laun – Unsigned artists – 3 brilliant Demos!

Introduction

I started talking to this band literally on the first day of opening my actual twitter account and working on it properly haha, they said they took influences from The Libertines, so instantly I was interested and I wanted to know what they sounded like. They also said they’re looking for a bass player and a drummer. When I listened to the songs it sounded like a band that had been together for quite a while.

The Demos

Here are the three demos they have, listen to them if you have ears (that’s everyone, except for people without ears)

I’ll be honest, I’m hooked on em’, and I can definitely hear hints of The Libertines in there. I love the tracks ‘Hourglass’ and ‘Interrogator’. All the songs are fast paced and have great melody, in two of the songs ‘Interrogator’ and ‘Half way home’ it breaks and then goes it turns into a little indie rave, I think that’s good how they’ve worked that into the songs.

All the songs have really catchy riffs in, the one that stands out for me is at the start of ‘interrogator’, i’ve heard a lot of unsigned bands try this at the intro and sometimes it sound quite under produced and a bit scratchy but this one is perfect,it gently brings you into the song.

Overall

I’m intrigued to see what they will be able to do when they have a fixed drummer and bass player, really think they could be something good here. If these are just the first of the songs, surely they can only get better, love to see if they could get an EP out. Another English band, based in Portsmouth willing to create music for us to hear so I think the least we can do is listen to it. They deserve a lot more recognition in my humble opinion, especially for a band that’s just started.
