The Vanns - 'Last Of Your Kind'

  • 2 min read

With intensity and euphoria, The VANNS have today unveiled the title-track off of their long-awaited forthcoming album ‘Last Of Your Kind’.

Setting the tone for what is an anthemic record, the track ‘Last Of Your Kind’ takes measured guitars alongside a inspired vocal performance from Jimmy Vann. Sonically the track pulls reference to artists such as Gang of Youths, The National, Arcade Fire, and Broken Social Scene.

The VANNS returned to a familiar setting to record both ‘Last Of Your Kind’ the single and the album, with The Music Farm’s Chris Collins taking the lead on production, bringing a mastery that drives ‘Last Of Your Kind’ into a track of stratospheric inspiration. The title-track sets the tone for the album, with another seamless example of how The VANNS have grown into masters of expansive indie-rock, trailblazers in their own right for the songwriting and emotion that can be defined by guitars, drums, and vocals.

Speaking about the track, the band explained, “The idea behind 'Last Of Your Kind' and a message throughout the album is living the most fruitful and spontaneous life you possibly can, in saying that, there is also no hiding the fact that we can all hit rock bottom, but you will always make it out the other side. Drop all the walls of questioning what other people may think about you. Embrace being different, embrace being weird and embrace being you, there will never be another... so make YOU the best fucking version you can.”

“The four of us have all been through a whirlwind of change in the last couple of years in the making of this record, but we have never been closer as mates. The recording process was a pretty surreal experience, most of the tracks are nearly all recorded live with us four in a room and some even entirely (vocals and everything). We had our good mate Chris Collins producing this record and it was so tight knit with him, he really got the best out of us being a live band and honing that live energy. So cheers to album number two and many more to come…”

The release of previous single ‘Ever’ and ‘Last Of Your Kind’ follows on from 2022’s ‘Haunted’ and ‘Making It Out Alive’, the only tracks shared by The VANNS in 2022 – a reminder of the evolution of the group, as they made their return to live touring, making up for time lost due to countless lockdowns on the East Coast.  With a rotation addition on triple j for both singles, alongside community radio support from Coast FM, Rebel FM, SYN, Radio Adelaide, 2SER, 4ZZZ, and more, the tracks’ accumulated 1,000,000+ streams across DSP’s in 2022.

Their debut album ‘Through The Walls’ firmly established The VANNS on the radars of many around the country; netting The VANNS the lucrative triple j Feature Album, as well as strong support across national community radio, DSPs and online media. Springboarding this success into the live arena, The VANNS enjoyed a sold out national tour off the back of the record, as well as successful support slots through Australian arenas with the likes of The Kooks and The Wombats.
