Live Review | Vant | Electric Circus

It’s been quite the year for indie rockers Vant.

With a summer packed with festivals including Glastonbury, 2000 Trees, Reading and Leeds, alongside performances with bands including Biffy Clyro, their live reputation has seen them propel through the year.

Now as the band are a staple sound on BBC Radio 1, with five of their singles premiering as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in The World, the four-piece returned to Edinburgh.

Headlining Electric Circus on a cold wintry night, the band demonstrated with ease why there is such a buzz surrounding them, proving things are only set to get bigger.

Launching straight into their politically charged set with high energy and passion, the band performed tracks back-to-back with little time to catch your breath, delivering a slickly driven show.

Performing tracks from their previous EP releases, Vant engaged with the intimate crowd throughout the set as frontman Mattie Vant even stepped off stage into the crowd to play amongst fans.

Set highlights ranged from ‘Fly-By Alien’ to Radio 1 highlight ‘Karma Seeker’ to crowd favourite ‘Parking Lot’ attracting the loudest singalong of the night. With catchy tracks reflecting political status, Vant have crafted a winning formula to engage, encourage and educate audiences across the UK.

On the night, Vant showcased they’re primed and ready for much bigger sets and have the passion to take them there.

Electric Circus is known for booking top acts before they hit the big time and it seems Vant are another name to add to the list.
