YOKE LORE – Goodpain
I’m in a folksy mood today. A lot of people will ask me what my favorite kind of music is, and I always respond, “It depends on what mood I’m in.” That’s what music is, an evocation of emotion through tones and syntax. Yoke Lore’s sound and his new single, Goodpain, force me into a folk mood. The emotion and instrumentation around his vocals bring that energizing sadness, or better put, that good pain 😉
Goodpain, is the 3rd single from Yoke Lore’s forthcoming EP, also named Goodpain. The running arpeggiated synth and driving instrumentation around Adrian’s voice give me a running/fast-paced feeling, similar to life running by you. Adrian’s vocals are a bit slower, giving the listener a much more realistic pace of life with the addition of emotional feel. The combination of the two give the song this melancholic yet uplifting feel that Yoke Lore was looking to evoke.
Yoke Lore is a well-rounded artists, giving his fans a description of what the song represents to him.
“It’s necessary to go through periods of pain or difficulty in order to find growth and betterment. This song is about striving for a bigger perspective on life in order not to feel bound by your circumstances. But it’s more than just “look on the bright side.” Things move in cycles; they’re necessarily constantly shifting. If there is no change, there is no growth—however, this can sometimes be downright painful. It’s important to find balance between knowing who you are while keeping in mind that there’s always growing and learning to do.”
