Some people just “feel” life in an intense manner, and what’s beautiful is how infectious that intense nature can be. That’s what it’s like to be with Adrian Galvin, aka Yoke Lore. He’s the type of individual who always speaks out his ideas, his thoughts, his emotions, and it reminds you just how rare it is to come across a person with such qualities. 2017 has been a mental year for Adrian, where he’s toured more than ever and released a constant stream of singles (his most recent one, Goodpain, being his most powerfully infectious tune yet.)

For the latest edition of the 405 Exchange podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre spoke to Yoke Lore about touring intensely in 2017, what goes into making a pop song work, the meaning of Goodpain, and setting himself apart from non-emotional gingers. Check out their conversation below, along with the video for 'Only You'.

“I want my songs to make emotion part of the everyday conversation, without it feeling like a realm you have to step into.”
