get acquainted with vanner in honor of the group’s 2-year anniversary
I came across Vanner when I was trying to listen to (G)I-DLE’s LATATA on Spotify. My clumsy fingers ended up typing something closer to LACHATA and my old eyes clicked the song.
I realized pretty quickly that I was NOT listening to (G)I-DLE, but I wasn’t mad about it. In fact, I liked what I heard so much that I kept on listening.
Valentine’s Day marks the groups second debut anniversary of this underrated boy group, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to introduce you to them.
- Debut date: February 14, 2019
- Label: VT Entertainment
- Debut Song: Better Do Better
- Fandom name: VVS (it comes from diamond rating terminology and represents a stone thati s very rare)
- Group name meaning: Combination of Victory and Banner
Why I Stan
For me the rap is where it’s at with VANNER. They have three skilled rappers with distinct styles. I dig the heavy sound of much of their discography, and though at times I think they’re a little overproduced, their music takes a lot of risks. The songs that are successful stand out and give Vanner a unique sound.
Their stages also tend to be high energy and exciting. Check out this performance video to see what I mean.
