FRESH: ‘Flaws’ – Yoste

Yoste returns with “Flaws”

Yoste has shared his brand new track, “Flaws”. “Flaws”, produced by Konstantin Kersting (of Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey” fame), is 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. The track follows “You Can’t Fix Me”, which tackles the harsh realities of toxic relationships, both within oneself and between people, from the vantage point of a someone on the cusp of adulthood.

The “Flaws” music video was shot during quarantine by Yoste’s father, Anthony Sines, an award-winning Australian cinematographer; one of a select number of people to be accredited by the ACS (Australian Cinematographer Society) and his accolades include three Golden Tripod Awards and recognition as Queensland Cinematographer of the Year. It shows Yoste as the main subject, the camera following him throughout the video, pensive and submerged in a pool at sunset.

“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. Based out of Brisbane, Australia Yoste is the moniker of young singer-songwriter-producer Kurt Sines.

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 debut EP heralded by standout singles “Arc” and “Blue” released in February 2019. Finding inspiration and kindred sonic spirits in the emotional music of diverse artists like Jonsi, Bon Iver, The Cure, and The 1975, Yoste (rhymes with “lost”) is out to prove that you can have it both ways by adding a layer of sophisticated introspection and whimsical beauty to the simplistic pop landscape.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
