It’s no secret that Tom Vek is one of our favorite artists over at RNRF so when news came that his third album was almost upon us, we kinda freaked. We also freaked when a release date for Luck was locked down (June 9th) and then freaked some more when “Sherman (Animals in the Jungle)” was released a short time again.
Now comes the video and guess what we did again? Yeah, we kinda freaked, and once you hear the tune you will too.
The track is a great post-punk little ditty with a fuzzed out bass and some great wailing guitar lines that seem to take inspiration from the track Vek recorded with DJ Shadow some time ago (“Warning Call”). The video is equally exciting when Vek’s uncanny voice cuts through the swath of sound as he shimmies and shakes wearing a self designed shirt no less!
