Yoke Lore’s “Heavy Love” Channels Your Most Complicated Relationship

It’s the debut track from his new EP, which is full of “stories about how we are bound to one another.”

February 23, 2016

Brooklyn's Adrian Galvin has a project called Yoke Lore. In an email to The FADER, he explained that writing songs under the alias is "a technique of telling stories about how we are bound to one another and how we are bound to ourselves." Yoke Lore's debut EP, Far Shore, will be out May 6 on B3SCI Records.

"Heavy Love," the huge-sounding debut track off Far Shore, is an indie-pop confection worthy of your next unrequited love mixtape. I dream of you when I'm upright/ you use me as your nightlight, Galvin sings. "The value of anything can be measured in how it connects to its various counterparts," Galvin said. "'Heavy Love' deals with the weight that those relationships sometimes come with, but this is only one story among many that will make up the mythology of Yoke Lore."
