Everyone loves a good comeback. Robert Downey Jr. did one, Liverpool are on the verge of doing one, and now it's the turn of Tom Vek—the perennially underrated multi-instrumentalist who first won us over back in 2005. His new single "Sherman (Animals in the Jungle)" is the first from his third album, Luck, to get a video, and that video's premiering above.
"Sherman" is great because (A) it's a cracking slice of danceable anger-funk and (B) the video is reminiscent of the best TV show that never was, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. It's intoxicatingly repetitive—the perfect soundtrack for an ambvialent generation who want to throw shapes but also think about existential things.
Luck is out June 10 on Moshi Moshi.
