Bio

Sydney triumvirate YOKE, have just dropped their latest single, 'So Far'. The single see's the band returning to Producer, Nik Kaloper (The Jezabels), who also produced the bands debut EP Jabiluka, released in July last year.

'So Far' see's an evolution to YOKE's music. They've maintained the synth-driven, nostalgic sounds and heartfelt vocals, but have moved to a more atmospheric space with their latest offering. That space was undoubtedly helped by the recording process. The band took two days in an idyllic, private studio near Sydney's Hawkesbury River to get the track down.

I thought Blood Orange and Twin Shadow had the market cornered on earnest, retro-fitted RnB pop but they've now found themselves with some ace company. If either ever needs a support act, I'll vouch for this!

Wow, what a fusion: velvety RnB vocals over shimmering 80s pop with a dash of retro-fitted production to top it off. Can't say I've heard anything quite like it but I wanna hear more.

Anyone that name-checks Cocteau Twins and Frank Ocean as influences has got my attention. This track sounds a bit like if Temper Trap accidentally got sent back in time to do a studio session with Kenny Loggins. I mean this in the *best* *possible* *way*.
