We are thrilled to announce a very special show with Tom Vek, celebrating the 10th Anniversary of his brilliant album ‘We Have Sound’, that he’ll be performing in full on 22nd May at Electric Brixton.
Over the course of his decade-long career Tom Vek has forged a reputation as one of London’s most enigmatic and exciting musicians. Breaking on to the scene with the attitude-spiked ‘We Have Sound’ (2005), Vek channelled his homegrown musical prowess into a bastion of mid-noughties electronic punk rock rebellion.
His long awaited follow-up, ‘Leisure Seizure’ (2011), was less raw but no less impactful. Now mixing the expertise learned from both, his newest offering, ‘Luck’ is set to be Vek’s biggest and most daring album release to date. Drawing on the modern anxiety of finding your place in a world saturated by information, ‘Luck’ plunges the personal to deliver tracks that are sincere, angry and poignant. ‘Sherman (Animals in the Jungle)’ – a searing comment on our state of moral ambivalence inspired by Tom Wolfe’s novel, ‘The Bonfire of the Vanities’ – delivers a bold chord sequence and a bass-line of such grandiose proportions as to rival Kanye, spliced with synth motifs reminiscent of the opening to ‘Kiss’ by Prince.
The LP format includes a download card specially designed by Tom Vek himself.
