Tom Vek Details

The Echo & 89.9 KCRW Presents
Tom Vek

Londoner Tom Vek studied design at Central Saint Martins before his self-produced music was picked up by an independent label and subsequently licensed through a major. Over the course of his decade-long career he 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 Vek’s biggest and most daring album release to date. Luck is being released with highly respected London independent Moshi Moshi, Tom and the label go back to the early days of his career, and there’s good vibes there.

As ever, Vek delivers an album that eludes straightforward definition. The ‘garage rock for the pro-tools generation’ as he puts it, is alive and well, only now it is met with the most ostentatious production and some of the biggest beats of Vek’s career. Luck is the magnificent offering from an artist who has achieved the rare feat of preserving the seduction of youthful rebellion and marrying it with experience. It’s big, angry and impossible to ignore.Tom has been touring the album around most of the major European festivals through the summer before making his first visit to the US in three years this October.
