yOya release new single ‘Fool’s Gold’ on New Professor Music; West Coast tour dates

By on February 16, 2014


Los Angeles-based folk duo yOya just released the aching, soaring new single “Fool’s Gold.” It starts hushed, enveloping, with a shimmer of acoustic guitar and opening harmonies that bring to mind Simon & Garfunkel and Local Natives. But as the synthesizers and drum machines enter, the song blossoms and “Fool’s Gold” announces itself as pure yOya: a masterfully crafted meditation on the complexities of desire, set to an old-meets-new tapestry of organic and electronic sounds. Impose premiered the track and said, “yOya carefully aligns the fragments of leftover feelings in a blooming song structure that slowly shines to toast the diamond in the rough that got away.” “Fool’s Gold” is yOya’s latest for New Professor Music, the label home to LA Font, Body Parts, Gothic Tropic and many more of Los Angeles’ most vital new bands.
