Australian singer/songwriter Yates has returned home for a string of national dates supporting Tora, and for the release of the 112 remake ‘It’s Over Now’. Over the past year his musical stylings have rapidly evolved into a sound that fuses folk guitar and piano with prickling electronic sounds.
With the release of his debut EP earlier this year, ‘Mercury’ received radio tastemaker support from Triple J, and KCRW in the US, racked up over 2 million streams on Spotify, and has had us all eagerly awaiting the next instalment; ‘It’s Over Now’. True to form, Yates transcends expectations by re-writing this 90s urban classic into a contemporary piece of indie/folk music on point for Australian ears.
With the focus being on his touring, Yates is also putting his head down to work on the next EP. In the meantime, check out ‘It’s Over Now’ available now through Sweat It Out
