Yoke Lore – Goodpain

Screen Shot 2017-05-25 at 20.56.17It took me far longer than I’d care to admit to work out exactly how the rhythm of the four beats used to pull you into this newbie from Yoke Lore worked but, having finally cracked the rhythmic code, I can safely say I’m glad I stuck it out because it leads to an electronic blinder that’ll have you reaching for a synth.

There’s something about the simplicity of this wee beauty that is pulling me deeper under the covers as it seduces me delicately with sounds I thought were only possible once you’d done some chemical testing. The Brooklyn singer is seemingly making waves (so the press release informs me) and to be fair it’s not really a surprise when the tunes being pumped out are as well-crafted and memorable as this. It flows more easily than a rock-free river, lingers more than the taste of that cigarette you had when you were drinking to try and impress your mates and it feels warmer than being cuddled by a pack of especially affectionate capybaras.

Settle yourself in for something smooth, juicy and [insert other generic word to adhere to music journalism stereotype of the rule of three]. What a corker, eh?
