Gav Prentice is a Glasgow based multi-instrumentalist. He is one half of pop duo Over the Wall, best known for their debut album Treacherous on Motive Sounds Recordings, their Around The Isles in 80 Days tour of Britain and Ireland, and their flagship anthem Thurso, borrowed for the theme of BBC comedy series Burnistoun. As part of Over the Wall, Gav has also contributed music to the Scottish Government's Greener Scotland campaign, Channel 4's Skins, and Kieran Hurley's Hitch. His debut solo album The Invisible Hand was released on Instinctive Racoon records in 2012. The release was supported with solo performances around Scotland and contains original songs which would later feature in Rantin. Over the Wall has recently released This Is How We Did It EP and the single Tell Her I Love Her on Gerry Loves Records, and will return to touring the UK in 2014.

A retired American steps off the plane at Prestwick, hoping to discover the land of his fathers. A beleaguered politician in Edinburgh dips her feet into a hot bath. An old drunk man in Peterhead has a mystical vision at the harbour. A supermarket checkout girl in Port Glasgow approaches work with a golf club. . . Set specifically in the town of each performance and drawing on storytelling, live music and the Scottish folk tradition, Rantin attempts to stitch together visions of Scotland's romantic past with its ever-changing present reality, revealing the patchwork identity of a nation.
