Olden Yolk are led by songwriters, vocalists, and multi-instrumentalists Shane Butler (of Quilt) and Caity Shaffer. Their lead single, Takes One To Know One, is an 8 minute hypnotic folk track that will lull you down a wormhole.

Olden Yolk is a group whose penchant for dystopian folk, abstract poeticism, and motorik rhythms have enveloped them in a sound uniquely of-the-moment yet simultaneously time-tested. The interlaced vocals of Butler and Shaffer are found guiding each composition on their enlivening self-titled debut. The project was initially conceived in 2012 by Butler as an outlet for one-off songs and visual art while touring and releasing albums with the band Quilt. Following the release of a split-record with Weyes Blood in 2014, Olden Yolk became a collaborative entity.
