TUNE van houten - You And Me
Leeds outfit Van Houten return with the searching new single, ‘You and Me’.
Following on from the lead single ‘What I Need’ and the band’s debut self-titled project in 2019, the Leeds five piece are firmly finding their own sound with the new EP and taking their shimmering slacker pop in a new direction - with ‘You And Me’ offering insight into a deep and reflective state of maturity.
Singer Louis Sadler explains... “You and Me reflects on the darker side of love and relationships, describing how me and my partner grew apart and outgrew one another. The song is about me trying my best to help this situation but ultimately making things worse through my actions. The song describes the fragility and fleeting properties of love and lust.”
‘You and Me’ is lifted from their upcoming ‘Home Alone’ EP, due out on Clue Records this November and promises more languorous, submersive soundscapes dappled in the evening sun.
The band have also recently announced and sold out two socially distanced live shows in their hometown to celebrate the EP release, taking place at the Belgrave Music Hall, Leeds, to a seated audience on 11th and 15th November.
Their debut, produced by Martin Smith (Gomez, Bombay Bicycle Club, Richard Hawley), earned them plenty of praise from BBC Radio 6 Music, Amazing Radio, Clash, Earmilk and more. Now with the follow up EP the 5-piece take their sound further into the world of Bill Ryder Jones, Real Estate, Ariel Pink and Jay Som, in what they self describe as “slacker pop with a cherry on top”.
