As sons of Thom Yorke and Janick Gers, Noah Yorke and Dylan Gers are both familiar with the blessing and burden that is the big-name rock dad. However, the two artists have something else in common: they have both been quietly and competently making their own fine line in haunting, acoustic-led songs across the past year or so. Now they’ve paired up, and you can hear the results of their first collaboration, Red Skies.

The new song undoubtedly carries some of that Yorke DNA that marked out Noah’s 2021 composition Trying Too Hard (Lullaby), but it is intertwined with elements of UK folk in its cyclical fingerstyle acoustic guitar, picked harmonics and pastoral flute-like elements.
