Brooklyn project Yoke Lore is the new musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. He combines echoing waves of banjo, vocals, and percussion to create unforgettable pop songs with tactile sincerity and conviction. Galvin first hit the ground running in 2016 with Yoke Lore’s debut EP Far Shore released on B3Sci Records. In 2017, the title track of his 2017 EP “Goodpain” hit #1 on Hype Machine, and quickly after his songs caught fire on Spotify, racking up over 10 million plays throughout the year.
Galvin grew up in an artistic family, his mother a director and his father an actor and sculptor. He was immersed in painting, photography, and ballet from an early age, eventually finding his first musical passion in the drums. The new EP Absolutes explores the grey areas between black and white ideas while building upon the lush, sonic palette of his past works. The new music finds the multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and visual artist polishing his heartfelt anthems and ruminating on finding balance amid respective oppositions by breaking through the notion that truth necessitates purity.
