Following on from the success of his Far Shore EP, Brooklyn’s Adrian Galvin (aka Yoke Lore) has been building momentum once again with intensified earnest. A month ago, he took flight once again with ‘World Wings’, but it’s his ‘Only You’ that has got us really excited here at Unrecorded.
Building on the folk-inspired electronica that Yoke Lore has become well known for, Galvin takes his sound in so many different directions with ‘Only You’. Opening with a Whitney-esque guitar-led Americana verse, Yoke Lore creates a sense of serenity before rapidly switching to a higher plane of perfectly arranged electronics. This song is filled with urgency, spurred on by the clever mix of acoustic strings, swerving digital elements and his bold, impassioned vocal.
Speaking about the track, Galvin explains that, “Only You is about learning to rely on yourself for the changes you wish to see in your life and in the world. It’s about realizing your insights as responsibilities; if you have the wherewithal to recognize problems in your life and in the world, then you also have the responsibility to try to change them. Don’t wait for anyone else to fix your problems.”
