YOKE LORE
YOKE LORE
Brooklyn-based project Yoke Lore is the new musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. 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.

Galvin grew up in an artistic family, his mother a director and his father an actor and sculptor. He was immersed in painting, photography, and ballet from an early age, eventually finding his first musical passion in the drums. While pursuing music, his artistry in other disciplines has not faltered, even lending his own artwork as the cover of his 2016 debut EP, Far Shore. It received glowing reviews from Consequence of Sound, Pigeons & Planes, The Fader, NYLON, and more. Far Shore achieved over 3 million Spotify streams, 3 Hype Machine top ten singles, and songs from the EP were featured in MTV’s The Real World and Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet. Galvin ended 2016 on a fall tour with Elliot Moss and a winter run of dates supporting Handsome Ghost.

To follow up the success of Far Shore, spring 2017 will see another EP release from Yoke Lore. On the new single, “World Wings,” Galvin warns those who “want the world to keep cool.” He explains, “This song is about starting to whip the wings you have to shake things up around you. If you sit still, you'll be left behind; get up and don’t let anyone tell you to sit down. When things are hopeless, just keep moving.”

When he’s not writing and recording new music, Galvin can be found teaching yoga or performing with his modern dance company Boomerang in Brooklyn. The physicality of his dance background helps Galvin communicate his message and connect with an audience while performing on stage as Yoke Lore. The live show finds Galvin using his entire being to connect his words and movement in a physical performance of the songs. After kicking off 2017 with shows playing alongside Aquilo, Wild Child, and Urban Cone, as well as at Savannah Stopover and SXSW, Yoke Lore released the first single from his upcoming EP. He has spent most of his spring on the road — touring in support of Overcoats, and then heading to the U.K. for The Great Escape and a tour with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. He will continue to tour throughout the summer and fall in support of the new EP.
ROGUE + JAYE (Zach Rogue and Courtney Jaye)
ROGUE + JAYE (Zach Rogue and Courtney Jaye)
Zach Rogue has fronted San Francisco’s acclaimed indie-rock outfit Rogue Wave for more than a decade, and he issued his 2011 solo album Come Back to Us under the name Release the Sunbird. Courtney Jaye, now based in Los Angeles, has lived in Nashville, Atlanta, Austin and Hawaii and released such albums as 2010’s The Exotic Sounds of Courtney Jaye and 2013’s critically lauded Love and Forgiveness.

The pair first came together to co-write in December 2013. They instantly recognized their seamlessness as collaborators, and the result was “Til It Fades,” a contemplative and dreamlike song that melds Rogue’s and Jaye’s backgrounds as rock and pop songwriters with wistful country flourishes. “Til It Fades” is among the 10 tracks on Rogue + Jaye’s debut album, Pent Up, out Friday, May 5, 2017.

The album is full of moments like that — moments like the outsized, heart-wrenching climax of “Don’t Say,” or the thumping, defiant chorus of “Little Relief.” Moments that echo the iconic duets of country’s golden age as much as Rogue’s rock background and Jaye’s penchant for Tropicália influences.
