$1 from each cassette sale will be donated to Campaign Zero
Early in 2020, Vekora successfully ran an IndieGoGo campaign to support the release of their second EP aptly titled EP2. When looking at recent releases that we wanted to put out on cassette, this was one of the first that sprang to mind. Drawing on influences like Sunny Day Real Estate, Appleseed Cast, Björk, and The Cure; Vekora has crafted a sound all their own. With pedigree featuring ex-members of Poor Old Lu, Demon Hunter, Seven Head Division, and Dead Poetic (among others) this band will wow you with a well-crafted mix of alternative, emo, and shoegaze. Fans of recent bands like The Darling Fire and Pine as well as any of the aforementioned heavy hitters will find a new love in Vekora. Orders from Friend Club come with a hockey card because it's the northeast (sorry Jesse).
In the lonely sands of commerce comes another musical adventure for your listening pleasure. Vekora is a band of human being people, writing songs that they are meant to write. Alexandra Wendt, Kurt Schmidt, and Jesse Sprinkle are fusing together their influences from the past couple of decades: Appleseed Cast, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Cure, The Smiths, Mogwai, Bjork, Jawbox, etc.
