With a background in visual art, art therapy/education, and classical piano/violin, Yvette Young aims to write emotive songs that capture colorful imagery, uplift, and tell stories. Covet's sound can be described as “instrumental progressive rock” but the music draws influence from many genres like Midwest emo and shoegaze and doesn’t try to adhere to one main sound. Young’s fluid and polyphonic fingerstyle approach to guitar is often described as very piano-like, and although her playing at surface level is technical and intricate, the music still aims to make people feel something and make people want to dance.
The band has released an EP, "Currents," an acoustic EP, and 2 full-length albums "Effloresce" and "Technicolor." Over time the sound has really transformed from its twinkly mathrock origins to a more evolved, fuller, more melodically complex sound that incorporates a myriad of tones and textures. There is currently one new album in the works, which the band will be playing songs from.
