Adrian Galvin, previously from Yellerkin and Walk The Moon fame has had a solo project for a while now named Yoke Lore. We covered an early track from his here. Today we wanted to check on his progress and found that he’s dropping a brand new track called “Safe And Sound” to the world. Galvin trades his usual electronic sounds for a more organic departure and bringing in arrangements of piano, horns, and strings to the mix. And “Safe and Sound” is the quintessential embodiment of such. The track is a startling observation on the changing roles relationships plays in our times.
For fans of Panda Bear, M83’s soulful beats and a modernist pop akin to Blackbird Blackbird.
Speaking about ‘Safe and Sound’ Galvin explains:
“I think there are different times throughout history where relationships have meant different things. In the Stone Age, they meant survival. In the Victorian era, they meant politics. And I think part of what they mean in our era is refuge. A bright spot of intimacy in an otherwise intricate web of depersonalization and the mass casual insincerity among daily interactions.
