Yves Jarvis, moniker of Montreal-based musician Jean-Sebastian Audet, creates music that is at once warm, haunting, and unfamiliar while remaining inviting and kind. His music is idiosyncratic neither by design or by chance; it just is. It mutates and shifts, as he does, through cycles and phases.

Victim,” the first single from Yves Jarvis since 2019’s The Same But By Different Means, represents the things that make his work compelling: careful folk noir, tender R&B flourishes, and pillowy vocal beds.
