The Vanns, Festival hall, 6th October 2022 by Mary Boukouvalas

Having spent the early months of 2022 at Bryon Bay’s iconic The Music Farm (Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Yothu Yindi) working with esteemed producer Chris Collins (Skeggs, Middle Kids Tyne-James Organ) Australia’s indie-alt-rock darlings The VANNS return now with another offering from these sessions; aptly titled ‘Making It Out Alive’. Featuring the renowned, soaring saxophone work of Dusty Boots, the track grows from a foundation of reverberating guitar & light percussion.

Jimmy Vann’s lacquer smooth vocals float dulcetly across the rhythm section, as instrumental layers build. Reaching an interlude of gentle piano lines, intertwined with Boots’ shimmering saxophone work, the track crescendos via an emotional & stirring solo from Jimmy Vann.
