Today, Yoke Lore releases track "Dead Ringer" in anticipation of his North American headline tour. The stirring single is debuted alongside a remix by Young & Sick. The song, which grapples with Adrian Glavin’s interpretation of pace and emotion, gets an EDM take with his wistful, hypnotic vocals over an upbeat dance melody.

Of the track, Adrian explains, "'Dead Ringer' is about pace. I like to move fast because I believe in progress over perfection. I get over things fast and like to move on to the next thing quickly. It helps me stay unattached. So that I don't get bogged down by loss or defeat. Because I'm also a sensate. I feel heavily and take the world personally. So I use to speed to defend against my faults." He expands, "but when you move quickly, you miss certain aspects of the journey. I could be missing out on some really wonderful information that I would get if I stopped to smell the roses once in a while. I worry that when something or someone really important comes around, I will be moving too quickly to catch it or them."

Last week, Yoke Lore unveiled track "Everybody Wants To Be Loved" with NVDES. Stepping away from the chill sound of his most recent Meditations EP, the single blends Adrian's idyllic vocals with an infectious beat for an irresistibly fun electronic jam that is sure to have you on your feet.

After putting out three acclaimed EPs which gained Yoke Lore a loyal following— Far Shore (2016), Goodpain (2017), and Absolutes (2018) — 2019’s Meditations stripped several of Galvin’s familiar songs to their core by trading the usual electronic elements for arrangements of piano, horns, and strings. In addition to these re-interpretations, listeners found two new studio songs on the Meditations EP. This fall Galvin is set to embark on his first national headlining tour heading across the country, playing premiere venues in cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Chicago along the way.

YOKE LORE UNVEILS INDIE DANCE-FLOOR JAM “EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE LOVED” W/ NVUDES

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES BEGIN SEP 28

In the wake of his North American tour announce, Yoke Lore unveils track "Everybody Wants To Be Loved" with NVDES. Stepping away from the chill sound of his most recent Meditations EP, the single blends Adrian Galvin's idyllic vocals with an infectious beat for an irresistibly fun electronic jam that is sure to have you on your feet. 

Speaking of the collaboration, indie sensation Yoke Lore states, "me and Josh (NVDES) run into each other in weird places. I’ve encountered him in random LA rooftops, Parisian cafes and German airports. Our collaboration is laced with some years of growth we’ve seen each other go through. I think the amount of time we took to let this song become a reality can be felt in its multifarious nature. It has a hectic drive that both makes you move and leaves you yearning. The song is about not being sure about your place in the romantic world. Do we have to play that game? And when we do who do we become? But if we don’t what do we miss? And all the changes we go through as we navigate those questions to build ourselves."

Josh of NVDES sums up the track with "'Everybody Wants To Be Loved' is about the angst of being human with the natural desire to share love in this volatile world."

“Safe And Sound” Video Still

Yoke Lore follows up the release of his stunning Meditations EP and recent run of UK tour dates with a beautifully shot docu-video to accompany his latest single “Safe and Sound”. Directed by Dylan Mulick, the video follows identical twin sisters Emilie and Brianna Gonzalez from LA as they prepare to compete in the Beat The Streets Los Angeles Freestyle Wrestling Championship.

The song itself is a stirring observation on the changing roles relationships play in this era. Speaking about the video New Yorker Adrian Galvin (aka Yoke Lore) says “This video is about learning how to create safety for ourselves. For Emilie and Brianna Gonzalez, wrestling is a place of prowess and freedom. Though it's not necessarily a ‘safe’ activity, wrestling is a refuge for them. It's a place where they can find joy through skill and inclusion through commitment.  Whether that thing for us is an act or a game or a person or a piece of music, this video is about finding, creating, and using it to balance and orient us.“

Adding to this, video director Dylan Mulick explains “When I was younger wrestling changed my life and inadvertently put me on a path to become a filmmaker. Over the years, the parallels between training and competition couldn't relate any better to a life in the creative arts. Adrian and I shared the experience of wrestling as kids and when the opportunity to collaborate came about, it was the first idea that came to mind. We reached out to Morris Bird at Beat the Streets LA and they couldn't have been more helpful. He introduced us to the Gonzales family and invited us to their tournament. This is hands down the most emotional and personal project I've had the privilege to be a part of. I'm really grateful to be able to help share the twins experience with wrestling driven by Adrian's beautiful song, ‘Safe and Sound’.” 

Yoke Lore is the solo musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. After putting out three acclaimed EPs which gained him a loyal following — Far Shore (2016), Goodpain (2017), and Absolutes (2018) — 2019’s Meditations EP strips several of Galvin’s familiar songs to their core by trading the usual electronic elements for arrangements of piano, horns, and strings. In addition to these re-interpretations, listeners will also find Galvin’s two latest singles “Safe and Sound” and “Chin Up” to complete the Meditations EP.

WATCH AND SHARE “CHIN UP” HERE

Three years of non-stop touring (supporting acts like Bastille, LP, Frenship, Overcoats, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Aquilo) and playing festivals worldwide (SXSW, The Great Escape, Field Trip, Billboard Hot 100) led to Yoke Lore’s first US headline tours, selling out shows all over the country. Having recently completed his first run of UK headline show and appearances at Firefly Festival and Bushstock he heads out on an extensive North American tour in the autumn. Full tour dates can be found below.

Yoke Lore layers the harmonies of Panda Bear, the soulful beats of M83, and the modern pop of Blackbird Blackbird to tell “the stories of how we are bound.” Galvin’s songs start with the folksy timbre of a banjo and add echoing waves of vocals and percussion to create unforgettable pop music with tactile sincerity and conviction. Since 2016, he has released 3 EP’s and a handful of singles, including a cover of Savage Garden’s “Truly Madly Deeply” that Taylor Swift added to her “Songs Taylor Loves” playlist.
