An interview and live-to-sir set with Melbourne psych ambient four-piece Yolke, including new and unreleased material.

Formed while field researching sound in 2008, Yolke released their debut album ‘Poppy Wash’ back in 2010, and it quickly drew references to shoe gaze, krautrock and folktronica, with some of the reviews citing the pop quirks of Caribou and Ariel Pink as influences.

In January 2012, Yolke embarked on an east-coast tour of Australia along with their ‘Fallopian Tunes’ label-mates Trjaeu, Wild Dog Creek, Document Swell and Red Hymns, which also saw them appearing at the inaugural Wormwoodstock Festival in NSW.
