An artist in every sense of the word, indie pop sensation Yoke Lore (Adrian Galvin) merges his talents to create an experience beyond his music and his new animated video for “Homing” features his own art with that of illustrator Emily Nava. “Homing” is the final track on his 2018 EP, Absolutes, of which Galvin says, “”Homing” is about seeing the search for love as a search for a home. It’s important to articulate what we really feel when we feel things like love or when we want to be with someone. For me, part of the reasons I search for love is because I long for a safety and security. For other people they might be looking for companionship or parents or someone who can offer them excitement. But for me, love is life as a homing missile.”
The animated video for “Homing” was animated by Emily Nava who has also provided illustrations and short animations of Galvin for Spotify and other platforms. The animations show Galvin searching in the desert for a home and using tree branches in an ancient form of locating water and minerals called dowsing. Interspersed throughout the video are Galvin’s own drawings animated to appear in time with the music. Galvin’s own art has been the centerpiece of the Yoke Lore project as he illustrates all of his own album and single art and now has joined forces with Nava’s animations to put together a unique video for the final track from his most recent EP.
Since the release of Absolutes, Yoke Lore has been headlining shows across the country and opening for artists such as Bastille. Most recently, Galvin lent his idyllic vocals to former tourmates FRENSHIP on their new song “Wanted A Name,” a track about the loneliness that follows the end of a tour. Yearning for those feelings again, Yoke Lore is gearing up for March headlining dates on the east coast after supporting LP in the midwest this February. Spring will bring a new batch of shows across the Atlantic as he embarks on a run of European dates with pop band Highasakite and hits US festivals Bottlerock and Firefly.
