As Adrian Galvin (aka Yoke Lore prepares to take the stage next week at SXSW, the New York singer has released a new single.

"Fake You" arrived Thursday, serving as a preview of Galvin's upcoming Absolutes EP, his third project, which is expected to arrive sometime this summer. It follows his recent single "Beige," for which he teamed up in January with fellow Variance favorite Shy Girls for a remix.

“These songs all gravitate around the struggle between two sides of something,” Galvin says of the upcoming EP. "They are all the conflicts of absolutes ... There must be a balance, some movement and some pull. A life of absolutes is no life at all."

Formerly a member of Walk the Moon, Yoke Lore will be hitting the road in April with FRENSHIP.
