Van Susans filmed this rooftop performance, high above HMV Bromley High Street, of them performing their single ‘Bricks not Sticks or Straw’, the opening track of their new album ‘Paused in the Moment’ (review here). This acoustic rendition is brilliant. Watch it below.



Live Gig Videos: Van Susans’ two Ollys perform ‘Bricks Not Sticks or Straw’ and ‘The Road’ for Leefest’s Garden Sessions

Leefest will take place this year on 29-30 June and it’s a nonprofit music festival that takes place annually in a small working farm just 15 minutes south of London in Bromley. The festival has their own series of taped acoustic performances called ‘The Garden Sessions’.

Local heroes Van Susans – or rather the two Ollys, singer/songwriter Andrews and keyboardist Groome – performed two songs acoustically. ‘Bricks Not Sticks or Straw’ was the band’s single that came out in March, and ‘The Road’ is a track off their upcoming debut album ‘Paused in the Moment’, to be released this summer on Beatnik Geek Records. Watch the stripped back performances below, it’s very different than their usual six-piece lineup.

Stay tuned for a review of the band’s appearance at Liverpool’s Cavern Club at this year’s International Pop Overthrow last Saturday, it’s coming up on the site soon.
