Tonight’s album of the week: VANT – DUMB BLOOD

Vant Dumb Blood

Dumb Blood is the debut studio album by London rock band VANT. The album, produced by Sam Miller, was released on 17 February 2017 by Parlophone.

A lot of VANT’s lyrical themes deal with political issues, with Mattie citing inspiration from global issues; “My concerns are worldwide things. It’s not strictly centred around the UK – it’s wars, global conflict, global warming.” With this philosophy, VANT prefer to refer to their origin as ‘Planet Earth’ – rather than associate with a particular nationality. Of this issue, Mattie says “I don’t believe in borders, I was born on Planet Earth”.
