Australian singer-songwriter-producer Yoste just released a beautiful new single off of his upcoming EP called “Boredom” on Island Records and it’s everything we want right now. The track follows his most recent release “Flaws,” a track about the painful feelings that come with a strenuous relationship, and the immense pressure that one can feel when their personal flaws seem to get in the way.
Both “Flaws” and “Boredom” come off his upcoming EP, A Few Brief Moments, due out June 5th. Earlier this year, Yoste released the first track off the EP “You Can’t Fix Me,” which tackles the harsh realities of toxic relationships, both within oneself and between people.
Yoste has a background playing in indie pop bands but quit that and law school to focus on solo music which eventually began to gravitate to a downbeat, bedroom vibe while retaining an undeniable groove and plenty of hooks. With influences drawn from ambient to pop, the project’s unique and moving music has swiftly gained worldwide attention, boasting over 85 million streams and a critically acclaimed debut EP called ‘Try To Be OK’ heralded by standout singles “Arc” and “Blue” released in February 2019.
“My current music is about being young, when you’re an adult but there are still enormous mistakes you can make. Introspection is huge for me, and in my new songs I’m trying to be more direct and less esoteric: relationship breakdowns, mental health struggles and drugs, young people struggling, highs and lows, trying to figure it all out.” – Yoste
