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.
