On Saturday 4th September slacker popsters Van Houten will perform their deliciously lo-fi stylings at Play Brew Tap Room in Middlesbrough.

Originally from Leeds, the chilled pop quartet are a complete spectacle, with a sound which has been described as perfectly encapsulating the feeling of a late and lazy summer afternoon. Promising positive vibes and a dynamic musical energy, the band will perform tracks from their forthcoming EP release, Home Alone Pt. 2, which is released on the brilliant CLUE Records on 10th September.

Recent single Now And Then has already garnered the attention of the likes of BBC 6Music and trendy music blogs, thanks to their ability to write blissful slices of atmospheric guitar pop which often belie deep and meaningful themes around relationships and loneliness.

Support on the night comes from Hartlepool’s indie pop band Marketplace, themselves no strangers to penning catchy odes to the vagaries of modern life.
