Published Jun 25, 2020Yves Jarvis, the stage name for shapeshifting pop auteur Jean-Sebastian Audet, released an excellent LP with last year's The Same but by Different Means. Today, he's shared his first new single since that release, and it suggests yet another new direction in sound.
While The Same offered dalliances in jazz, funk, hip-hop and gospel, the new Yves Jarvis is a more straight-ahead, breezy folk-rock tune. As always, however, it's immaculately produced and performed.
The song is "a tightrope walk between victor and victim," Jarvis explained in a press release, and the track has arrived via a new lyric video, which features a looped, animated self-portrait of the artist.
