"Back To The Story" is packed full of personality and change, a fluidly moving track that keeps you guessing, surprising you at each passing second with its musical reveals. It's the B-side to Yoder's upcoming 7" on Greenway Records, and serves a mystical, entrancing introduction to the release. There's a subtle transfixing quality to the single that's apparent right from the beginning, opening with a flourish of romantic instrumentals. Then Yoder steps in inviting us into a moment before, and all the while he remains a guiding force, even as the instrumental landscape around him transforms ever so slightly. The track is strong and personable, casting a spell over you that continues to buzz about your head even after it has played out.

You can catch some of the magic for yourself during the band's upcoming tour.
