Yellerkin – Tools

Pro yellers and childhood friends, Adrian Galvin and Luca Buccellati, is Brooklyn-based folk electronic band Yellerkin.

There has been some seriously good music coming out of Brooklyn of late but there is a real rawness to Yellerkin’s new track ‘Tools’ that truly sets it apart. The pulsating track howls energy and emotion, and the changes in tempo at 2:30 and 3:00 is magic.

“Tools is a kind of anthemic generational song, but one that tows the line between triumph and tragedy” explains Adrian Galvin, who continues “This song is about our limitations; how fucked up it is that we are the generation that bought into all the crap our parents protested against in the 70’s!”
