(Girlie) Tom Vek's new album Leisure Seizure digitally released in the U.S. this week, with the physical release to follow on September 13th.
Vek will be heading to the U.S. for two shows in New York City. He'll be playing on July 12 at Mercury Lounge, and the following night, July 13 at Union Pool in Brooklyn.
Vek's debut album was spontaneous in both its release and its sound. Leisure Seizure is a distinct development; a more controlled, consistent and elaborated version of the unique, raw sound of We Have Sound that intrigued and captivated its audience.
The formula remains the same: Vek begins with an unusual noise or recording and develops the track from there, with the final process an objective and sensitive co-production from Tom Rixton and Liam Howe. Equally engaging, Leisure Seizure typifies Vek's trademark percussion. Music that is engaging with an emphasis on beats and cryptic angular statements Working as a solo, multi-instrumentalist means there is never any obligation to use an instrument that isn't absolutely necessary.
