Yves Jarvis dances in the desert in video for new single ‘At The Whims’

Yves Jarvis is back with a video for his new single, “At The Whims.”

The track comes from his forthcoming fourth studio album, The Zug, out May 13th. With catchy, rhythmic guitar lines and silky vocals, “At The Whims” will truly take you on a journey. The accompanying black-and-white video follows Jarvis as he dances and sings along to the track in the desert.

The track depicts “the arc of civilization,” Jarvis says. “From our genesis to our self-realization (‘..We’re not at the whims! We’re out on the fringe!’), humanity’s insatiable conquest (‘Unprecedented unfolding, out from their holdings and into the fray’) resulting in our ‘rise’ the fervid leap from 0 to 1 that sets society’s wheels into motion and ‘the fall of an empire’ that looms across all epochs.”

“Punctuated by the contemporary individualist, nihilist narrator, (‘Prospect in front of me is void and empty’) only to be usurped and outnumbered by the enlightened and life is void and empty’) only to be usurped and outnumbered by the enlightened and life affirming post-chorus of ecstatic ‘YEAHs’,” Jarvis adds of “At the Whims.” “A bullish acoustic strum anchors us to the earth while harmonics wail mightily from above, evoking a desert sandstorm, while the lyrics are inspired by the poetic depth of Bob Dylan.”

In addition to “At the Whims,” The Zug features previously released singles “Bootstrap Jubilee” and “Prism Through Which I Perceive.”
