YAM HAUS

Thu., Oct. 17, 8 p.m.
Andiamo Celebrity Showroom 7096 E. 14 Mile Rd., Warren Greater Detroit Area

Buy from Ticketmaster$43 / $28


With “electro-poppy grooves and swooning vocals” (Star Tribune, June 2018), Minneapolis-based pop group, Yam Haus, is challenging the Indie dominated scene of the Twin Cities. Tight guitars, dreamy synths, and clean production from Grammy award-winning producer Mark Heimermann, helped drive year one successes. Their debut album, “Stargazer,” lands with the energy of WALK THE MOON, the charisma of Coldplay, and the emotion of Ed Sheeran. Strong melodies and thoughtful songwriting become even more apparent and powerful when big production and synth-heavy tracks are stripped back with the minimal arrangements of their acoustic EP, “Stargazer Sessions.” 586-268-3200
