MUSIC NEWS: The Van T’s Release Brand New Single ‘Seeing Stars’
Scottish alt-rock quartet The Van T’s have released their brand new single Seeing Stars, out now via 7 West Music. The track is a precursor for the band’s upcoming EP and follows 2019’s single Control.
“So, I wrote Seeing Stars off the back of an ongoing battle with mental health issues,” explains the band’s Hannah Van Thompson. “After a year-long slump I started off with the lyrics ‘I want to believe in something inside me’. It started off as words on paper and grew arms and legs until eventually I had a song. I’m happy with the way the music itself resonates a sense of growth in strength. I wanted the song to be punchy and bright, it sort of reflects the way I want to progress in getting better. I hope those who have the same issues can relate to this song.”
“At the start of the song it states, ‘I’m the King of Queens’ for a slight tongue-in-cheek, like ‘Yass Queen’…’On yourself’ for getting back out there,” she adds. “Personally, I try not to take myself too seriously, I stop worrying about things as much and what others perceive of me. ‘Seeing stars again’ is a slight nod to being out of that dark place and overcoming demons. I so hope the song can be enjoyed and danced to, with everything that’s going on in society and across the globe. These are trying times and I know the band are excited to get playing this live again.”
