The duo of Ben Fletcher and Tom Higham, who introduced themselves back in 2014 with their inimitable and beautiful cinematic sound – have spent the last 2 years going from strength to strength. A handful of widely acclaimed EP’s have seen them garner an impressive and dedicated following both with fans, and also in the Film and TV world. The past couple of years have seen their EP’s rack up over 50 million streams on Spotify and a range of their songs included in TV ads, film trailers and major TV shows including Vampire Diaries, Greys Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars and more.
 
Silhouettes is the culmination of this journey; a collection of emotive and intimate songs that depict the life experiences they’ve gathered along the way. The heart-wrenching lyrics and stirring vocals of both Tom and Ben complement each other perfectly throughout the record, aurally wrapping you up in perfect fireside warmth.
 
Having produced the majority of their own material along the way, when it came to the album they were honored to also work alongside the brilliant SOHN as well as spending some time in the equally inspiring landscape of Iceland with renowned producer Ólafur Arnalds.

A ‘yoke’ is something that holds things together. ‘Lore’ means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture,” explains Adrian Galvin, when asked about the meaning behind his musical moniker Yoke Lore. “I want to tell stories about how things are bound and held together. I think something’s value is in its relationship to everything else. Work in the joints; where things come together.” 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 4 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 , June 2017 saw 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 Shura, Wild Child, and Urban Cone, as well as at Savannah Stopover and SXSW, Yoke Lore spent most of his spring and summer on the road. He supported Overcoats in the US and then traveled overseas for The Great Escape and a UK tour with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. He released his sophomore EP, Goodpain , in June 16th before playing festivals on the east and west coasts, leading up the the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in August. Once again, he toured with Overcoats in September, and supported Aquilo in October to end the year. Yoke Lore begins 2018 with his first headline tour.
