In a few short days, we’ll be making our annual pilgrimage to SXSW. One of our favorite acts that we caught last year in Austin was Adrian Galvin, better known as Brooklyn based alt project Yoke Lore. Turns out, he’ll be making his way back out to Austin this year, too! And he’ll be slinging some fine new music, too. Case in point, new single Fake You, lifted from his forthcoming EP Absolutes. The indie pop track explores the grey areas between black and white ideas, while building upon the lush, sonic palette of his past enthralling works. The multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and visual artist is back at it, stealing our hearts with his heartfelt anthems which are both ruminative and sweeping. “These songs all gravitate around the struggle between two sides of something,” Galvin explains. The opening track, “Fake You,” is about the difficulty of realizing your perception of someone doesn’t necessarily match who they really are. Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to hear more of Yoke Lore’s new music in Austin. One can hope. For now, you can re-visit some of his prior releases on Soundcloud, here.
