Last year, the exciting and progressive LA songwriter Yore unveiled his debut ‘EP1’ and introduced music fans and outlets to his stand-out, powerful and emotive vocals and mesmerising visuals, consistently combining music with high art. Following the release of his last track ‘Desperate Measures’this summer, Yore returns with his enchanting new single ‘Chasing Daylight’ (out now via independently popular.).
Euphoric and instantly addictive, the new single – produced by Jordan Reyes (Yuna, Black Coffee, Daniel Caesar, Goldlink)] – sees Yore moving towards a more up-tempo and uplifting space, as he touches on embracing the uncertain and learning to make the most of now.
Speaking on ‘Chasing Daylight’, Yore said:
"It's about seeing the beauty in things that are uncertain, enjoying good times even when you're unsure how long they will last. Running with the clock, rather than racing against it. Unconditional joy."
Earlier this summer, Yore released the haunting and melancholic, ‘Desperate Measures’, which once again saw Yore demonstrating his unique, soulful stylings – which Hunger described as ‘cinematic soul’ – as he continues to explores his own vulnerability in a world where the boundaries of space and time are constantly shifting.
2018 saw the release of Yore’s debut ‘EP1’, a 6-track project co-produced with Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, Dvsn, Little Dragon, one half of the musical duo Quadron and founding member of Rhye), featuring the spellbinding ‘Angel Eyes’, which Notion labelled as ‘heavenly’, the i-D tipped ’New Religion’ and his debut track ‘Knew Better’.
Working on his debut EP, Yore created every song with a small list of collaborators and arrangers. For inspiration, Yore says he booked several solo trips between LA and Europe, making serendipitous connections and getting attached to the rhythms of places like London, Paris, and Berlin. The result is a deeply developed emotion he calls “the nostalgia for what could’ve been” - painted on a rich tapestry of cinematic instruments and progressive sounds.
Continuing to tell a story through ‘Chasing Daylight’ and forthcoming new music, it’s an intimate and exciting direction not only for Yore as an artist reborn, but for the music industry at-large.
