Yoke Lore - Chin Up

Yoke Lore - Chin Up

Taken from his forthcoming ‘Meditations EP’ set for release on May 31st, Yoke Lore returns today unveiling his wonderful new single Chin Up. Speaking about ‘the single’ Galvin explains, "“This song is about fighting fire with love. My little brother was a huge pain in the ass growing up. He would throw these awful tantrums, and I would always want my parents to punish him and throw him in his room and ground him or something, but they never did. They always just tried to listen and comfort him. They told me all you can do in the face of anger is to hit it with compassion, which usually peels away the aggression to reveal a vulnerability. This song is not about my brother who, by the way, turned out very well-adjusted, but it is about the struggle of learning to tamper your reactivity and volatility. Learning to forgive at the drop of a hat. It's a skill I aspire to master." Take a listen for yourselves below.
