Black Moth Super Rainbow can be a mouthful for a band name, but frontman Tom Fec’s side solo project, Tobacco, is paving a more clear-cut path for the artist. Tobacco’s music is recognized as primarily electronic, but extracts elements from 1980s workout videos and slasher footage to incorporate a more thrilling personality.
In an interview with the A.V. Club, Tobacco debated how less-orchestrated lyrics add something deeper to his music. “Maybe if I can come up with these lyrics that don’t mean anything, I can pull some meaning from that down the line that means so much more to me than anything literal could,” he said.
Tobacco is currently lighting up stages with tUnE-yArDs. Catch a glimpse of his mysterious, perplexing performance below.
