Tom Vek – Sherman (Animals in the Jungle)
Tom Vek has always had a knack for delivering eye-catching videos and maintaining a unique vocal cadence that makes him identifiable in seconds. “Sherman (Animals in the Jungle)” may be his best yet, its frenetic editing causing a constant shift in perspective and a feeling of nervosity. Everything from the colors to the set and the lighting hint at decay beneath the surface, backing Vek’s lyrics of a life spun out of control. The video’s a little slow to get out the gate (the song doesn’t start until about a minute in, save a few screeches of synth), but as soon as the spotlight lands on Vek sitting in his place of judgment you won’t be able to tear yourself away.
