Absolutes, the new EP from New York indie pop act Yoke Lore​, explores the grey areas
between black and white ideas while building upon the lush, sonic palette of his past works. The
new music finds multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and visual artist Adrian Galvin​ polishing his
heartfelt anthems and ruminating on finding balance amid respective oppositions by breaking
through the notion that truth necessitates purity.
“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. “Cut And Run” follows, conveying the
instinct to flee versus the instinct to find a home, and “Concrete” illustrates Galvin’s struggle
between living in the city and being in the country. “So, they are all the conflicts of absolutes,”
he states. “There must be a balance, some movement and some pull. A life of absolutes is no
life at all.” As with his previous releases, Galvin drew the artwork for his upcoming EP using
bifurcated lines and contrasting imagery to convey his messages of absolutes.
The former Walk the Moon​ and Yellerkin​ member’s solo musical endeavor 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.
Goodpain also garnered attention from major tastemakers such as NYLON​, Consequence of
Sound​, Billboard​ and more. Yoke Lore toured extensively through 2017 with acts like Aquilo
and Overcoats​, while also making his way to the UK for The Great Escape and festivals like
Field Trip in Toronto and Billboard Hot 100 in New York.
Following the success of his song “Goodpain,” Galvin was invited to Spotify’s New York City
studio to record a stripped-down version the track, as well as two covers for his Spotify
Singles​: “Last Christmas” by Wham! and “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden. His holiday
song graced Spotify’s Holiday Singles playlist alongside covers by Demi Lovato, Sam Smith,
and Miley Cyrus.
After a successful first-ever run of headline tour dates, Yoke Lore found a unexpected new fan
in pop idol Taylor Swift​, who added his cover of “Truly Madly Deeply” to her “Songs Taylor
Loves” Spotify playlist in 2018. Galvin releases his third EP, Absolutes, in July 2018 after a
cross-country spring tour with FRENSHIP ​and before heading out on tour again.
