The Van Doos - 'Black It Out'

Melodic guitar-pop

<br />
What Helmsley, North Yorkshire’s The Van Doos do is straight-ahead melodic guitar-pop with plenty of old-but-good tricks like simple, three-note riffs, and drawn out crescendos that lead to a chorus which goes, “Baby, something glorious is about to happen!” It’s about going out and getting hammered and forgetting about all the shit in your life. Obviously.
