Moody Monday: With Yore and his Debut Single, "Knew Better"


“Have you ever wondered what it’ll be when it all runs out?" Yore sings over piano and soft strings to match the elegance in his voice. Followed by, ”Who will you be when the world blows your cover?" A progressive question that leads into an internal conversation in Yore's songwriting vulnerability.

Co-produced Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, Dvsn, Little Dragon,), best known for being one half of the musical duo Quadron and founding member of Rhye, "Knew Better" is a compelling introduction to Yore's forthcoming EP1, and sets the tone for what audiences can expect. 


Says Yore of the release, "The song is an expression of new vulnerability and regret I started writing three years ago. I was going through an intense period of alone time trying to figure out my life, listening to a lot of meditative ambient music, and found this beautiful instrumental by a Ukrainian composer called Heinali. There was a melody I couldn’t get out of my head, so I just recorded a demo right there at home and forgot about the song for some time. Several months later , a friend introduced me to Robin. I've always been a fan of his musical sensibility, his attention to detail, his intentionality. He really pays attention to everything and was able to bring my vision to life."
