Des Moines, IA
Garage rock / Surf rock
From the first lick of their debut album “Bum Out,” you get serious surf rock vibes from The Vahnevants. You have probably seen these guys around (maybe even in DSM punk project Goldblums, with whom The Vahnevants share members) – they have been busy churning out new music (two albums in 2016 and a split EP with Karen Meat) and playing the Des Moines venue circuit.

Their sound is very warbly and gritty. Dave Murphy from Des Moines Is Not Boring cited them as such: “They’re like The Everly Brothers if Phil had just completed a 12 hour shift as a bus driver then headed straight to the studio and Don got hit in the head with a rubber mallet just prior to recording…” So take that all with a grain of salt. It might get a little dirty/real/raw/grimy but it’s going to be a lot of fun.
