Van Houten // ‘What I Need’

Words: Sharc Bolan / @sharcbolan // Images: Sam Joyce /

  • Self-described as “slacker pop with a cherry on top”.
  • Don’t miss the DIY visual video to accompany this release (see below).
  • The five-piece have already received support from BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, Clash, Earmilk and more since their 2019 debut.

We should take any route of escape from the world at the moment, and I think we’ve just found our latest means of transport – the latest release from this emerging Leeds outfit. Lifted from their next project, the band announced their new EP ‘Home Alone’ coming this November, promising more languorous, immersive soundscapes.

So dreamy you can visualise floating amongst the clouds, but if you’re struggling to imagine anything for yourself fear not, as the group have put together a video that you may not be able to unsee afterwards…
