Tom Vek - I Aint Saying My Goodbyes
Tom Vek is located musically where Beck must want to be right now – a step further from Beck’s quirky instrumental and well spoken singing style and has added an electro punk edge and more deliberate flavour, which is especially apparent in Tom Vek’s latest single, I Aint Saying My Goodbyes.
The powerful bass line gives this number a much deeper groove that on this level shows a deep appreciation for funk and with the harder electro inputs towards the formidable end, the feeling is that this joyous song could belong on any dance floor from an indie pop night to a soul session to a pumping dance party.
Lyrically, Vek knows how to blend simple poignant verses with the ordered chaos of the noises making the melodies – a bubbling pot of funk punk electro kept just below boiling point. His style lyrically and musically is so blended that it is hard to distinguish what noise is the most effective, but together this is a powerful track that is bound to keep the promises of those who say Tom Vek is the man to watch this 2005.
