Album Review: Tom Lark - Tom Lark

10 March 2015 | 6:23 pm | Naaman Zhou

"A stark admission that Lark needs more arrows to his quiver."

Tom Lark’s brand of indie pop sounds like the product of an all-in-one automatic cooker-mixer – effortless, perfectly processed, full of the right kind of aural pickups to keep you endlessly listening. His five-track EP, while never repetitive nor formulaic, does give the impression of homogeneity. It’s the simple fact that any five songs of similar tempo and identical worldview will inevitably blur together, regardless of quality. This record, then, functions as both a demonstration of talent and a stark admission that Lark needs more arrows to his quiver.
