"Marking his grand return after a seven year hiatus, Tom Lark is today releasing the gloriously warm, lush, and layered debut record Brave Star. Shaped in equal parts by the confronting vulnerability of John Lennon, the soothing sidewalk slack of Kurt Vile, and the troubled braggadocio of spaghetti westerns, the songs on BraveStar are dreamy, well-penned psychedelic folk with a philosophical bent" Flying Out

Brave Star is the debut full-length album from Tom Lark, marking his return after a seven year hiatus. Shaped in equal parts by the confronting vulnerability of John Lennon, and the troubled braggadocio of spaghetti westerns, the songs on Brave Star are dreamy, well-penned psychedelic folk with a philosophical bent.

Tom Lark is the original musical project of Shannon Fowler, who also releases material under the Shannon Matthew Vanya pseudonym. Where SMV allows for pop indulgence, Tom Lark is an outlet for the artist’s indie sensibilities. Having released two eponymous Tom Lark EPs in 2011 and 2015 respectively, Fowler set the project aside for a period but has returned to his first love, which turns out to be making sunburnt psychedelic folk fit for sensitive cowboys to meander and philosophise to. 

Brave Star is being released through Ōtautahi’s Winegum Records.
