Supported by Lunir.PROPONENTSof an engrossing fusion of electronica, RB and folk that has left music lovers and critics floored at every turn. Childhood friends Stuart Ramage (Singer, Songwriter, guitarist) and Roan Ballantine (Producer, pianist, DJ and songwriter) make up the multi-genre-bending duo of VanIves. Hailing from south-west Scotland their sound originates from the dancefloor, layering catchy hooks and immersive imagery which is quietly making this duo Scotlands most exciting export.The duo hit the music scene this year with supports for notable artists such as SG Lewis, Tokio Myers and Be Charlotte whilst also celebrating their debut single by opening Glasgows TEDxTalk at the Armadillo and garnering airtime from outlets including BBC scotland and Amazing radio.They first met as ten year olds lobbying to have a skate park built in Galloway. The songs are written in a unique manner, by sampling family VHS tapes and building soundscapes and songs around the memories attached to those moments. The music is a cathartic nod to the past and a springboard to a bright future. Sonically theyve managed to create a seamless analogue and digital blend, glued together with impassioned soaring vocals, routed in hip-hop influenced production.Lunir, a UK/Germany two-piece meddling in soul, indie, RB and genre-hopping will open for Van Ives.
