Watch Yoke Lore In New Time Lapse Video For “Cut and Run”

Ahead of Yoke Lore’s (Adrian Galvin) forthcoming “Absolutes” EP, the New Yorker brings us another taste with a new single and video for Cut and Run.

With a focus on the struggle between two polarizing sides, Cut and Run finds Galvin instinctively fleeing, as we often do in our own lives. Here, tribal-inflected drums snap, roar, and collapse amongst threads of anxiety as harmonies bloom like a bouquet, vibrant and boundless.

In the accompanying Nick Lieberman directed video, Galvin runs, falls, and slides at hyperspeed through a series of scenarios and surroundings. Always Moving. Always seeking. Always learning.

Of the single and video, Galvin says:

“Like a centrifuge or mixing sugar into coffee, you stir to rise to the top. In this video I spin to elevate, like a tornado does, attempting to elevate my understanding. But I realize that in trying to find something I have already found it. By striving I have achieved. I can find purpose at all speeds because I have seen myself at every speed. I have sat still in the lowlands and sprinted through the desert and climbed through the forest, sliding down hills and into an underground space until I begin to spin. I create myself anew in different ways by interacting differently with my environment.

I get different information at different speeds and thus as I return back through the spacial and rhythmic dimensions from the basement to the high desert, I gain perspective. I gain fortitude and I find purpose. I return to my complete movement reinvigorated; ready to journey with vision, now I understand exactly how I need to move.

Going through the motions of something physically simple is more tiring than running a marathon you’re passionate about. Understanding, orientation, skill add ease to action. Frivolity is impractical. I need to investigate my movement in order to fully appreciate and be able to move through the world with both empowering self-consciousness and fulfilling productivity.”
