FRENSHIP
FRENSHIP
There's a strong contrarian streak in FRENSHIP, the Los Angeles-based duo of James Sunderland and Brett Hite. James grew up in Colorado and relocated to LA after four years of college studying production, where he was part of a DJ duo that didn't work out. Brett grew up in Spokane, Washington with a passion for soccer. An injury led him to discover a burgeoning interest in music and he began to play coffee shops and small venues after college as a singer/songwriter.

Brett and James met while working retail in LA and began to realize they each brought something to the table musically that the other could appreciate. They describe their hypnotic production as a combination of the twosome's affection for '80s-styled pop.

The duo signed on with Columbia Records and subsequently released their debut EP, Truce, in September 2016.

FRENSHIP's platinum-selling single "Capsize" was one of the most viral hits of 2016, surpassing 20 million streams in its first month and collecting over 300 million to date. Spotify crowned them #2 Breakout Artist of the year due to the song's chart performance.

FRENSHIP returns with their rhythmic follow up single "1000 Nights," accompanied by a cinematic, wilderness-themed video and lyric video.

“A ‘yoke’ is something that holds things together. ‘Lore’ means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture,” explains Adrian Galvin, when asked about the meaning behind his musical moniker Yoke Lore. “I want to tell stories about how things are bound and held together. I think something’s value is in its relationship to everything else. Work in the joints; where things connect.” Brooklyn-based project Yoke Lore is the new musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. Yoke Lore layers the harmonies of Panda Bear, the soulful beats of M83, and the modern pop of Blackbird Blackbird to tell “the stories of how we are bound.” Galvin’s songs start with the folksy timbre of a banjo and add echoing waves of vocals and percussion to create unforgettable pop music with tactile sincerity and conviction.

Galvin grew up in an artistic family, his mother a director and his father an actor and sculptor. He was immersed in painting, photography, and ballet from an early age, eventually finding his first musical passion in the drums. While pursuing music, his artistry in other disciplines has not faltered, even lending his own artwork as the cover of his 2016 debut EP, Far Shore. It received glowing reviews from Consequence of Sound, Pigeons & Planes, The Fader, NYLON, and more. Far Shore achieved over 4 million Spotify streams, 3 Hype Machine top ten singles, and songs from the EP were featured in MTV’s The Real World and Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet. Galvin ended 2016 on a fall tour with Elliot Moss and a winter run of dates supporting Handsome Ghost.

When he’s not writing and recording new music, Galvin can be found teaching yoga or performing with his modern dance company Boomerang in Brooklyn. The physicality of his dance background helps Galvin communicate his message and connect with an audience while performing on stage as Yoke Lore. The live show finds Galvin using his entire being to connect his words and movement in a physical performance of the songs.

After kicking off 2017 with shows playing alongside Shura, Wild Child, and Urban Cone (as well as at Savannah Stopover and SXSW), Yoke Lore spent most of his spring and summer on the road. He supported Overcoats in the US and then traveled overseas for The Great Escape and a UK tour with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. In June, he released his sophomore EP, Goodpain featuring the single of the same name that has since hit over 3 million Spotify streams. Yoke Lore played festivals all summer on the east and west coasts, leading up the the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in August. That same month, he recorded a cover of Savage Garden’s “Truly, Madly, Deeply” for Spotify Sessions that hit Spotify’s Top 10 Viral chart. In the fall, he toured with Overcoats again and then supported Aquilo to end the year. Yoke Lore began 2018 with his first headline tour, and he’ll be supporting FRENSHIP on tour through the spring.
