The Van T’s return with blazing new track ‘Seeing Stars’

It’s the Glaswegians first new music of 2020

The Van T’s have returned with the blazing ‘Seeing Stars’

The four-piece’s first new music of 2020, it’s a hazy runaway train that refuses to slow down – perfectly setting up The Van T’s for a big ‘ol 12 months

Speaking about the track, Hannah Van Thompson of the band explains: So, I wrote ‘Seeing Stars’ off the back of an ongoing battle with mental health issues. After a year-long slump I started off with the lyrics ‘I want to believe in something inside me’. It started off as words on paper and grew arms and legs until eventually I had a song. I’m happy with the way the music itself resonates a sense of growth in strength. I wanted the song to be punchy and bright, it sort of reflects the way I want to progress in getting better. I hope those who have the same issues can relate to this song.”

“At the start of the song it states, “I’m the King of Queens” for a slight tongue-in-cheek, like “Yass Queen”…”On yourself” for getting back out there. Personally, I try not to take myself too seriously, I stop worrying about things as much and what others perceive of me. “Seeing stars again” is a slight nod to being out of that dark place and overcoming demons. I so hope the song can be enjoyed and danced to, with everything that’s going on in society and across the globe. These are trying times and I know the band are excited to get playing this live again.”
