Yves Jarvis Shares New "360" Video

Yves Jarvis is known for his auteur approach to music making, composing, performing, and recording everything on his albums himself.

With his 2019 album The Same But by Different Means Jarvis takes meticulously crafted filaments of songs, found sounds, and melodies to weave together a rich, complex tapestry of a record: an ‘album’ in the fullest sense of the term, and one that rewards repeated and close listening. Now Jarvis has taken that DIY approach and directed his own video for album cut “360”. Watch it HERE.

“This video is meant to illustrate the lyrical content of the song “360” with the dynamics of the camera’s zoom,” Jarvis explained. ”Through ecstatic zoom-ins/outs in direct response to both the video and the songs cadence, the performances are met and elevated. Here, my electric, fierce motions are a peek into the physicality of my studio productions. The blue tone is in reference to the album’s overall blueness, executed by projecting the initial black & white footage onto a blue wall. The lines between direction and performance are non-existent here, as I intended to both possess the frame in real time and through the subsequent editing in order to altogether embolden these notions - conjoining the two for the greater sake of the song, rather than to simply accompany the audio.”

The Montreal-based artist has performances coming up at Sackville’s Sappy Fest, Pop Montreal, Le Guess Who in the Netherlands and Sonic City in Belgium. All upcoming dates are listed below.

Praise For The Same But By Different Means:

“To plainly call it a singer-songwriter record would be reductive; 22-year-old Jean-Sebastian Audet moves freely between genres, dabbling in everything from D’Angelo-esque funk jams to whispery field-recording-folk and ambient balladry without missing a beat.” – Pitchfork’s ‘Records You May Have Missed: Winter 2019

“Yves Jarvis hides beautifully soul-bearing sentiments just beneath his veneer of blurry tape manipulation and impressionistic production.” - All Music Guide

“At times, the 22-year-old autodidact can sound like Stevie Wonder (if Stevie were performing in a library, that is), and at others he channels a subdued Captain Beefheart.” - NPR Music (Best Albums of March)

“Genre fluid … Clever, crafty and casual — a low-key record in the very best
of ways.” - Aquarium Drunkard

Different Means’ flows like a single piece of work, with songs bleeding into one another, textures appearing and dissolving, and Jarvis’s voice floating angelically in for a few bars before vanishing … while it’s tempting to want to hear what Jarvis might do in a more conventional pop format, the almost subconscious free-flow of ‘Different Means’, and the way it weaves a slow and steady spell, suggests that changing the formula might mean ruining the magic.” - Bandcamp’s Best Albums of Winter 2019
