Album: Awakening by Panophonic
A longtime staple of Philadelphia’s indie rock scene, Tom Lugo’s dark, heartfelt yet edgy songs and productions are an intricate blend of indie pop songwriting, post punk aesthetics, shoegaze stylings, and gothic tendencies. The lyrical content is dark and emotive.
He is also known in the underground circuit for the festivals, shows, tours, and constant work that he does to further the scene on the east coast of the US and abroad.
He is the owner of the independent record label Patetico Recordings, the mastermind behind the Popnoise Festival, as well as being involved in a variety of musical projects that include indie rock band Stellarscope, dream pop project MAYU, dreampo/shoegaze project Cielo Oceano, indie pop project Heliocentric Overdrive, alternative-metal project Dreams Turn Black, and many more.
