After a triumphant, packed and sweaty sold out show at London's XOYO last month, today cult artist Tom Vek announces an October tour, more festival dates added to the diary, and new single 'Pushing Your Luck' (due 25th August) - this is the second single from his third and highly anticipated album 'Luck'.
'Pushing Your Luck', in true Vek style, is another immersive, hooky and infectious track with Vek's signature glib vocal tones and simplistic yet repetitive composition. "'Pushing Your Luck' showcases Vek at his most frustrating and teases a themes the runs through the rest of the album. This frustration comes from the juxtaposition of an instrumentally great track with the chorus of the words "all you do is push your luck" repeated again and again' say The 405.
Tom Vek will undertake a 10-date tour this Autumn, culminating at London's Koko on15th October. He plays Latitude Festival, Boardmaster, Split, Y Not and Festival No 6 throughout the summer.
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, 2005's "We Have Sound" and 2011's "Leisure Seizure" were examples of how ambitious a lo-fi rock hybrid could sound. Luck is released on highly respected London independent Moshi Moshi.
