Minneapolis indie trio Yam Haus started gaining traction within the pre-pandemic years, debuting in 2019 with their first full-length report, Stargazer. Within the years since, they’ve begun drawing a bigger following on-line and have been teasing their upcoming undertaking with a collection of singles this 12 months. They’ve already shared their cathartic new tracks “Rafters” and “Sandcastle,” and right now they’re again with one other new tune, “Silly and Well-known,” premiering with Underneath the Radar.

“Silly and Well-known” leans laborious into anthemic alt rock riffs, buying and selling off between subdued pop percussion and bursts of stadium-ready guitars. It’s large, loud, and filled with hooks, providing a crystallized mix of distorted rock guitars blended with a welcome melodic sheen. Concurrently, the monitor’s lyrics additionally exhibit a playful aspect to the band as they toy with the trimmings of contemporary fame, most particularly social media.

The band says of the monitor, “‘Silly and Well-known’ is a tune that was impressed by our time making an attempt to determine use TikTok as a band. The web could be such a scary place, and it felt actually dishonest to attempt to be social media influencers. We have been very disenchanted with plenty of what we felt musicians are advised they need to do to advertise their music on there.

This tune sprang up as a sarcastic try at confronting the scenario head on. Funnily sufficient, I’m fairly positive I began writing the tune on a TikTok livestream. Over time, I’d say we’ve altered how we relate as a band on social media. It’s laborious to be susceptible and have individuals critique you frequently. It’s even laborious to have individuals you don’t know lavish consideration on you and assume you’re wonderful. It may well all really feel very bizarre.

On TikTok, we undoubtedly pivoted from our early methods on YouTube or Instagram the place we have been all about sharing our private lives and being constructive. Lately, particularly on TikTok, we’ve taken a way more insincere strategy to the entire spectacle, which truly felt like one of the sincere issues we might do outdoors of simply not utilizing it. It felt very obligatory.

We undoubtedly really feel silly at instances – and we’re clearly not well-known – however making an attempt to be fashionable on social media can actually drain you mentally. Nonetheless you utilize it, should you’re making an attempt to advertise your self you’ll inevitably stumble upon that feeling. General, we’re simply making an attempt to determine make music for a dwelling, be sincere with ourselves and our followers, and be wholesome people all on the identical time. This tune stemmed from a majority of these struggles.”

Take a look at the tune and video under. “Silly and Well-known” is out all over the place tomorrow, June thirtieth.
