After six years of silence we thought Tom Vek had forgotten how to compose. But nothing could be further from the truth. The Londoner is turning 30 and the perfect way to celebrate is by releasing the follow-up to “We Have Sound” (Tummy Touch, 2005), “Leisure Seizure”, on his new home, Island. To start warming up for 6th June, Vek has just released the video of the first single, “A Chore”, which with those keyboards could be taken directly from Madchester. Directed by Ollie Evans, we see a beautiful girl effortlessly impersonating the singer.
Vek has also announced a UK tour for June. Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow, at tomvek.com
