Absolutes, the forthcoming EP of 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.
After recently premiering the first song, “Fake You” from the EP, the Brooklyn-based artist arrives with the visuals for the track exclusively on Billboard, who noted that “the indie pop up-and-comer, shows a vulnerable, somber side of himself in the poignant track.”
Dealing with the idea of bringing the outside in and the inside out, the video finds Galvin playing out the fantasy of introspective exploration, where he literally breaks down the walls of a living room, to see him surrounded by a lush landscape. It’s an idea that has influenced his songwriting; adding that it allows him to search for other parts of his identity, breaking down walls “to find out what remains, what is constant amidst those drastic changes. I try life in the sun and expose myself and I have time with the moon where I float within the blank space of my own unknowing.”
