Yoke Lore’s “Safe and Sound” music video examines the human condition

Following the release of his “Meditations” EP and a run of UK tour dates, Yoke Lore has returned with a stunning music video for his latest single “Safe and Sound.” The documentary style clip is a story about the human condition, and follows a pair of twin sisters Emilie and Brianna Gonzales on their journey to compete in the Beat The Streets Los Angeles Freestyle Wrestling Championship. Try not to shed a tear watching it.

The song itself is a stirring observation on the changing roles relationships play in this era. Speaking about the video New Yorker Adrian Galvin (aka Yoke Lore) says:

“This video is about learning how to create safety for ourselves. For Emilie and Brianna Gonzalez, wrestling is a place of prowess and freedom. Though it’s not necessarily a “safe” activity, wrestling is a refuge for them. It’s a place where they can find joy through skill and inclusion through commitment. Whether that thing for us is an act or a game or a person or a piece of music, this video is about finding, creating, and using it to balance and orient us.”

See Yoke Lore live this fall on his 18-date North American tour which kicks off in late September.
