The Blue Van - "Love Shot" (CD)


The Blue Van, whose name was chosen from the vehicle, which transports patients to mental institutions in Denmark, have been playing together since the age of 12. The four members of the band raised in the Northern region of Denmark come from modest backgrounds as sons of carpenters, truck drivers and farmers, yet have quickly garnered international attention with rave reviews for their live shows and recordings in Rolling Stone magazine. Notable live performances have included extensive tour dates with Australian rockers, Jet as well as opening dates for Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Keane, Razorlight, Hot Hot Heat, and The Pretenders.

The first single from the album “Love Shot” is already an absolute airplay hit in their home country; not only was "Love Shot" Single-of-the-Week on the national Danish mainstream radio DR P3, it also remained a full 3 months at high rotation at P3 and was a Top 10 airplay chart success.

Let there be no doubt that the boys in The Blue Van know their music history to the tips of their fingers. It is exactly this deep respect for the traditions of classic rock combined with a boundary seeking and almost provokingly modern rock production that gives the band its unique sound. "Love Shot" is the final fight against the taboo and dogma rules from the garage- and retro scene and could have a few music snobs falling out of their seats. That is also the aim.
