Catfish & the Bottlemen's Ultimate Playlist

Despite Catfish and the Bottlemen forming in Llandudno in 2007, it was in February 2016 when the BRITs, in their infinite wisdom, deemed them worthy of winning the award for British Breakthrough Act.

Their 2014 debut album The Balcony put them on the map, going gold in the UK and earning them a legion of adoring fans. They now return with the followup, The Ride, which at the time of writing, is riding high at number one on the iTunes charts after being released on Friday.

We caught up with lead singer and guitarist Van McCann to discover his Ultimate Playlist, and the stories behind the choices. Stand by for some absolutely belting tunes...
