Love Thy Neighbour Presents

VAN HOUTEN

Van Houten’s core is based on life long friendship, an inability to exist without each other, and an obsession with creating a sonic mixing pot of intimate lo-fi rock + cavernous Shoegaze. Their sound envelops the listener, combining upbeat pop melodies and hooks with downbeat lyrics one minute, before full introspection and aural catharsis the next.

The Leeds based band’s new music sees them find their own, unmistakable sound, something which has been 7 years in the making. It’s been worth the wait, allowing them to explore sounds, textures, and raw emotions. Supporting each other through difficult moments has been key to the band finding their feet and growing into what they are today.

They acquired the input of producer Alex Greaves (bdrmm, Working Men’s Club, Bloc Party) who helped them push harder, delve into a more forceful, raw sound, characterised by chiming dueling guitars and droning moody soundscapes.

The band have matured into something truly unique, melding a 90’s alternative sound and aesthetic with true pop sensibility. Touching on a variety of sounds from lo-fi indie, psych rock, shoegaze and garage rock, Van Houten have reinvented themselves with a strong and defined identity that will mark as a turning point in their careers.
