YOKE LORE – Fake You
Yoke Lore releases the first single, Fake You, off his upcoming EP Absolutes. The indie pop act from New York is a multi-instrumentalist, known for that banjo. He’s also a dancer and visual artist. His album talks about the gray areas of music. On one side, but on the other hand…these contradictions depict black and white decision making, whereas in reality, there is so much in-between.
“These songs all gravitate around the struggle between two sides of something. Fake You is about the difficulty of realizing your perception of someone doesn’t necessarily match who they really are.”
Adrian Galvin aka Yoke Lore has been in music his whole life. He was a previous member of Walk the Moon, who had that enormous song, Shut Up and Dance. He also had another project called Yellerkin, who Louis The Child did a remix for.
His single, Goodpain, really boosted the talented musician’s reputation. It hit #1 on Hypem and racked over 10 million streams online. This lead to headline stouring with acts like Aquilo and Overcoats in 2017. He played SXSW (and he’s going back again this year), The Great Escape, Field Trip, and Billboard Hot 100.
Yoke Lore was invited to Spotify’s New York City studio to record two covers: Last Christmas by Wham! and Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden. These were featured on Spotify’s Holiday Singles playlist alongside covers by Demi Lovato, Sam Smith, and Miley Cyrus.
The New York indie-pop artist is about to embark on a cross-country spring tour with FRENSHIP. After the tour, he will release his third EP, Absolutes.
