“We had just come off the road this spring and the impact of ‘Capsize’ was still resonating, but we weren’t sitting around saying ‘Oh, we have to top what came before,’” says James. “We just want to keep putting out music and hope that our songs connect so that we can keep building.”
FRENSHIP’s foundation is alive and well thanks to the impressionistic “Love Somebody.” The duo’s flinty chemistry depends on their ability to converge and diverge at any point in a song’s construction to get to its core. They resist cookie-cutter solutions for a kind of against-the-grain truth-meter that breaks form and embraces their own creative distinctions. For James, the song began as an ode to an ex-lover he wanted to send off with a heartfelt song. “Kind of saying it didn’t work out but I hope you find happiness with somebody else. It’s like the goodbye song I never wrote.” For Brett, it conjured up an outlook on life and love he wishes for people even at their very youngest. “My nephew was 1 year old at the time we wrote it, and I remember thinking the song could be ascribed for what I hope for him – to feel joy, to feel pain, to experience all that life has to offer and at the end of the day to love and be loved by somebody.” The end result is a mood-altering gem with a strong chorus that can’t help but stick in your head. “I like the fact that it invites different interpretations,” says Brett. “The best songs are always perceived one way by one person and a completely different way by somebody else. When we write, the binding thing in the end is that it means something to us both.”
The same kind of vetting took place on their massive hit “Capsize.” The viral impact of the infectious song (featuring Emily Warren) marked it as a rare difference-maker in the world of hybrid pop. “Capsize” totaled nearly 410 million streams, scoring at radio and notching multiple gold and platinum certifications around the world. Frenship earned the #2 Breakout Artist nod for 2016 on Spotify and a Shazam 2017 Emerging Artist tout, with the group becoming an in-demand breakthrough act at concerts and festivals around the globe, including Lollapalooza Chicago, Outside Lands Music Festival, Life Is Beautiful and others. They drew raves opening for British indie band Bastille on their European and U.S. treks, also establishing themselves as a deserving headlining act.
“We enjoy playing live and kind of keep focused on show concerns when we’re out there, leaving the songwriting for when we’re off the road,” says James. “That’s why we went to Ojai when we were all done. It was hiking in the morning and working on new songs the rest of the day.” Joined by ------ and previous collaborator Nick Ruth, FRENSHIP worked on about 30 ‘ideas,’ with “Love Somebody” revealing itself as the breakaway track from the sessions. The group completed a video with up-and-coming director Austin Kearns, which Brett says they shot in “actual film, not video,” adding it “was fun to do” and also felt more authentic. “It goes back to the songs,” he says. “We’re always conscious of trying to make our music a little more timeless. That vibe was definitely there in the writing sessions. We never want to be yesterday’s news.”
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 3 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.
To follow up the success of Far Shore, spring 2017 will see another EP release from Yoke Lore. On the new single, "World Wings," Galvin warns those who "want the world to keep cool." He explains, "This song is about starting to whip the wings you have to shake things up around you. If you sit still, you'll be left behind; get up and don't let anyone tell you to sit down. When things are hopeless, just keep moving."
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 Aquilo, Wild Child, and Urban Cone, as well as at Savannah Stopover and SXSW, Yoke Lore spent most of his spring on the road. He supported Overcoats in the US, traveled overseas for The Great Escape and a UK tour with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and then released his sophomore EP, Goodpain, on June 16th. This summer, he’s playing festivals on the east and west coasts, leading up the the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in August, a tour supporting Aquilo in October, and Emerge Music + Impact Conference in November.
