Tom Vek Confirms Tour Dates

In June, DIY recording artist Tom Vek returned with his third album Luck.
Detuned guitars, looped up drums, lackadaisical vocal delivery and orphaned electronic noises all mix together to make up the sound of Luck.
It's an album full of his typical pseudo-existential sloganeering, offering few answers to the rhetoric questions. Cautionary tales mix with apparent declarations of vulnerable romanticism, angry warnings and bouts of depression-squashing mantras. Overall it's an optimistic atmosphere, melody and grooves over melancholy for melancholy's sake, and oddly catchy.
"I play all the instruments to a basic level, enough to explore something enough to be surprised with an outcome, this includes the computer as an instrument, so it's like Pro Tools garage-rock I guess," said Tom Vek.
