Founded on seven years of friendship through times thick and thin and a shared obsession with exploring the fuzziest, far-out corners of 90’s guitar music, Leeds-based sextet Van Houten are ready to show us what they’ve been busy cooking up... Having distilled their choicest lo-fi, shoegaze and garage rock inspirations into eight eagerly-awaited tracks of dreamy pop perfection, Van Houten release The Tallest Room, the band’s debut full-length album, via groundbreaking new label imprint Clue Records / EMI North.

It is worth the wait, having enlisted the ears and ideas of producer Alex Greaves (bdrmm, Working Men’s Club, Bloc Party), the album is a captivating melting pot of eclectic influences, conflicting emotions and earworm hooks that celebrates the journey the band have been on and looks forward to the future with optimism, whatever it may hold. Van Houten have matured into something truly unique, melding a 90’s alternative sound and aesthetic with true pop sensibility. Touching on a variety of sounds from lo-fi indie, psych rock, shoegaze and garage rock, Van Houten have reinvented themselves with a strong and defined identity that will mark as a turning point in their careers.

Within The Tallest Room, lies an honesty and vulnerability that we can all find solace in.
