It's a Modular triple threat with Tom Vek, Kindness, and Jonathan Boulet on the bill.
In what is hands down one of the most exciting tours of 2012, Modular are bringing to Australia Tom Vek (finally, right?), he of C-C (You Set the Fire in Me) and I Ain't Saying My Goodbyes fame, who released an absolutely incredible album in We Have Sound on the now defunct Go! Beat back in 2005 and then disappeared for years, only to reemerge in 2011 signed to Modular and carrying a second album, Leisure Seizure.
Not only that, but Vek will be joined by fellow Londoner Adam Bainbridge, AKA Kindness, whose male-model looks and penchant for the disco grooves of early DFA outputs and early-1990s Prince makes for one hell of a combination. If you missed out on tickets to The Artist Formerly Known As The Artist Formerly Known As Prince then you need to get some Kindness into your life. Seriously.
Finally, local Modular boy doing rather well, Jonathan Boulet, will round out the triple-bill, previewing songs from his upcoming album We Keep The Beat, Found The Sound, See The Need, Starts The Heart.
