“Safety” by Yoke Lore

"Safety" by Yoke Lore is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'.

Brooklyn project Yoke Lore has released the new single “Safety,” the 3rd offering from forthcoming debut EP Far Shore, due out this Friday, May 6, via B3SCI Records. Yoke Lore is the latest musical endeavor from Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Adrian Galvin.

Yoke Lore’s debut single “Heavy Love” was released earlier this spring alongside a video inspired by George Lucas’s 1971 THX 1138 and showcasing peculiar dance choreography. The video’s choreography highlights Adrian’s work as a dancer with NYC dance company Boomerang, which he co-founded. This March he premiered a dance piece he created with Greg Saunier of Deerhoof at lower Manhattan theatre Dixon Place.

Adrian 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. Whilst pursuing music, his artistry in other disciplines has not faltered — in fact, he drew the Far Shore EP artwork himself.

Spirituality and self-awareness has been a steady constant in Adrian’s life, from his days studying a customized college major in self-divinity and a year meditating in India, to his passion for Taoist yoga which he teaches regularly. After a series of rock and folk bands through high school and college, Adrian co-founded the duo Yellerkin in 2013. He has since forged a new musical path in the form of York Lore, a project founded in the essence of human connection.

Yoke Lore will make his U.S. live debut on June 8th in NYC.
