“Society has set that tone but that don’t make it so / Despite how it appears to you, that don’t make it true.” Yves Jarvis’s “That Don’t Make It So”, are the lyrics in Yves Jarvis’ new single “That Don’t Make It So.” Jarvis has released a new video for the track. Taking place in an urban setting as the camera makes quick cuts between him in a mall parking lot and behind a green screen as he playfully glances at the camera. Directed by Colin Medley.
Jarvis will begin a run of spring North American tour dates with fellow Montreal artist Homeshake on March 21 at Montreal’s MTELUS. Other cities include Brooklyn, New York, Washington DC and Chicago, IL. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
Yves Jarvis’ new album The Same But By Different Means continues to create music that is at once warm, haunting, and unfamiliar while remaining singularly inviting and kind—a mélange that reflects both comfort and its counterpart. His 2017 LP Good Will Come To You was celebrated universally for those things that make Audet’s work compelling: careful folk noir, tender R&B flourishes, pillowy vocal beds that somehow seem to neither begin nor end, and a punkish ambivalence towards saccharine melodics that traditionally dominate the previous three structures.
Songs on the record range from 14 seconds long to over eight minutes. The record’s title is itself a step further: with each new project, Audet adds a word to the title. “This year is my transition into Yves Jarvis where I’m not only widening the scope, but deepening the picture altogether.”
