Video Premiere: Yam Haus – “So Long”

Minneapolis-based indie rock trio Yam Haus just put out a new EP called Stupid and Famous today via Big Loud Rock. The seven-song collection moves on from their earlier synth-driven sound to focus more on catchy, guitar-driven hooks that keep your toes tapping.

To celebrate the release of their infectious new EP, the group is debuting the music video for their latest single off the release called “So Long.” The song’s lyrics focus on the band’s journey to find their true sound and their identity as a band.

“A lot has changed since we started making pop music and doing a daily vlog on YouTube for nearly two years straight,” says frontman Lars Pruitt about the band’s journey. “We used to be so down to make ‘content’ to grab people’s attention, and these days, I find myself feeling a lot less inspired by social media. But the beautiful thing is that I’m still inspired by making music and connecting with people over music. We hope this EP connects with people, and we can’t wait to play it live in clubs this fall.”

The video sees the band playing the song with an unbridled energy against the backdrop of a blazing light show that throws the band members into beautiful contrast. Check out the video below:
