FRENSHIP
FRENSHIP
There’s a strong contrarian streak in FRENSHIP, the Los Angeles-based duo of James Sunderland and Brett Hite. James grew up in Colorado and came from a family of opera singers, and while he didn't inherit that opera gene, he did sing in choirs and played the drums as a kid. James moved to L.A. after 4 years of college in Pennsylvania studying a crash-course in production, where he was part of a "soul-sucking" DJ duo. A fateful DJ ship cruise was the final turning point for him, though he still knew he wanted to do music, just with some emotion to it, some soul. Brett grew up in Spokane, Washington with a talent for soccer and as a hobby played the drums and guitar. A music career was the furthest thing from his mind. It would eventually take an injury for Brett to discover his burgeoning interest in music and the gnawing realization that he was beginning to burn out on the sport. Brett began to play coffee shops and small venues after college as a singer/songwriter.

Fast-forward a few years to when James and Brett met while working in retail in Los Angeles. It wasn't long before the friends tired from partying after work hours and decided to get serious about creating music together. Both acknowledge the creative process began slowly, but they soon came to realize each brought something to the table that the other could appreciate. The duo describes their hypnotic production as a combination of the twosome’s affection for 80s-styled pop. FRENSHIP’s natural progression in creating their viral hit “Capsize” (which has been streamed more than 55 million times on Spotify to date) along with previously released songs captures the band’s signature sound. “Our music in general is really a hybrid of the organic with the electronic,” says James. “Over time, we’ve come to trust our mutual instincts more and more.” FRENSHIP will release an EP this fall via Columbia Records.
Yoke Lore
Yoke Lore
Absolutes, the new EP from New York indie pop act Yoke Lore, explores the grey areas between black and white ideas while building upon the lush, sonic palette of his past works. The new music finds multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and visual artist Adrian Galvin polishing his heartfelt anthems and ruminating on finding balance amid respective oppositions by breaking through the notion that truth necessitates purity.

“These songs all gravitate around the struggle between two sides of something,” Galvin explains. The opening track, “Fake You,” is about the difficulty of realizing your perception of someone doesn’t necessarily match who they really are. “Cut And Run” follows, conveying the instinct to flee versus the instinct to find a home, and “Concrete” illustrates Galvin’s struggle between living in the city and being in the country. “So, they are all the conflicts of absolutes,” he states. “There must be a balance, some movement and some pull. A life of absolutes is no life at all.” As with his previous releases, Galvin drew the artwork for his upcoming EP using bifurcated lines and contrasting imagery to convey his messages of absolutes.

The former Walk the Moon and Yellerkin member’s solo musical endeavor combines echoing waves of banjo, vocals, and percussion to create unforgettable pop songs with tactile sincerity and conviction. Galvin first hit the ground running in 2016 with Yoke Lore’s debut EP, Far Shore, released on B3Sci Records. In 2017, the title track of his 2017 EP “Goodpain” hit #1 on Hype Machine, and quickly after his songs caught fire on Spotify, racking up over 10 million plays throughout the year.

Goodpain also garnered attention from major tastemakers such as NYLON, Consequence of Sound, Billboard and more. Yoke Lore toured extensively through 2017 with acts like Aquilo and Overcoats, while also making his way to the UK for The Great Escape and festivals like Field Trip in Toronto and Billboard Hot 100 in New York.

Following the success of his song “Goodpain,” Galvin was invited to Spotify’s New York City studio to record a stripped-down version the track, as well as two covers for his Spotify Singles: “Last Christmas” by Wham! and “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden. His holiday song graced Spotify’s Holiday Singles playlist alongside covers by Demi Lovato, Sam Smith, and Miley Cyrus.

After a successful first-ever run of headline tour dates, Yoke Lore found a unexpected new fan in pop idol Taylor Swift, who added his cover of “Truly Madly Deeply” to her “Songs Taylor Loves” Spotify playlist in 2018. Galvin releases his third EP, Absolutes, in July 2018 after a cross-country spring tour with FRENSHIP and before heading out on tour again.
Dan Sadin
Dan Sadin is a Los Angeles based musician who invites you in with his intentional, raw guitar and vocals only to keep you coming back for the songs. Currently known for his guitar work in the group Frenship, Sadin is releasing music this year for the first time under his own name. Born from short breaks between long tours, Sadin self produced, wrote and recorded in his own garage studio, creating songs that sound both fresh and warmly familiar at the same time. His music is colored with the same reverence for honest songwriting and performance that his heroes had before him. Growing up in San Francisco, Dan Sadin lost himself in a world of songs and classic guitars by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, and Fleetwood Mac. Here he discovered the union of raw guitar and personal songs delivered with powerful, memorable words and melodies. Always seeking to serve the song, Sadin, uses the guitar as the heart and soul of his work as a producer, performer and songwriter. His unique and passionate style of playing can be found on records from Sabrina Claudio and Jessie Ware to Frenship and MØ. In the spring of 2018 Dan Sadin will be opening on tour for his longtime friends/bandmates in Frenship and releasing his first series of singles.
