No stranger to Nexus Music Blog, acoustic folk artist Aaron Yorke is hitting our digital pages once again with his new single ‘Games’. Releasing his debut album, Taking Time To Heal, over a decade ago in 2016, Aaron established himself as a local artist performing throughout the West Midlands. As time past, he gained the attention of “big names” in the music industry and was performing with the likes of Leona Lewis, McFly and Scouting for Girls. Skip a few years ahead and this award-winning singer-songwriter and producer returns to releasing music and damn, are we happy about that!
Hot on the heels of his single ‘I Remember The Days’, ‘Games’ is Aaron’s third single release of 2020. Known for his heartwarming sound, Aaron takes the genuineness and sincerity of his music to a new level in ‘Games’. One of the reasons I enjoy listening to Aaron Yorke’s music is how he uses simplicity to convey overwhelming emotion. Using basic piano accompanied by his warm, dulcet tones, ‘Games’ oozes sincerity over the poignant and honest lyrics.
While reminiscent of Ed Sheeran with the introspection of Hozier’s tracks, Aaron Yorke is smooth and sensitive. However, ‘Games’ strikes out with its stripped-back and soothing nature exceeding anything Sheeran has up his sleeve. I honestly cannot wait to see what else Aaron has up his sleeve.
