Vant – Beetlebum / Talk Like Thunder

British rock band Vant was formed in 2014 by frontman and songwriter Mattie Vant. Virtually all of his lyrics deal with political issues of worldwide concern, like wars and global warming.

Early this year, after quite some singles (of which I love Fly-By Alien and Karma Seeker in particular), they released their debut album Dumb Blood.

Last month, to my astonishment, the band announced they were taking an ‘indefinite hiatus’. And this is what they just wrote on Facebook: ‘What a ride these past few years have been. (…) Thanks for all the support. We’ve been Vant from Planet Earth. See you in another life’.

Well, that’s all a little bit hard to believe, isn’t it? Let’s just wait, keep breathing, and see what happens.

In the meantime, there is a lot to enjoy among Vant’s ‘final’ tracks, collected on the EP Talk Like Thunder: a nice cover of Blur’s 1997 anthem Beetlebum, for instance, and the title track of the EP, which you can find below:
