Rising singer, songwriter, and producer Yot Club has dropped his newest single “off the grid,” the title track from his debut album, out June 10 via amuse. Deceptively buoyant, the track speaks to the emotional exhaustion caused by boredom and desperately needing a change of pace. The scuzzy, indie-rock arrangement incorporates bouncing riffs, sharp melodies, and a swooning guitar solo that will have you tapping your feet the moment you hear it. off the grid is available now for pre-save HERE.
“I made this song in my last couple of months living in Mississippi. I was living in a house with 6 people and I was really sick of it. I was also tired of the monotony of the town I was in and ready to be somewhere else,” shares Yot Club.
“off the grid” is the third single from Yot Club’s forthcoming album which was written during his move from Mississippi to Nashville and inspired by the patterns of individuals living in a small town. While many ache for a desire to explore the art and beauty of the world around us, people in these areas face a lack of opportunity and an illusion of camaraderie which results in longlasting mental and physical effects as they seek escapism. Experiencing this first hand during a time of unease, Ryan Kaiser (who creates music as Yot Club) instead focused on his excitement for the future in creating off the grid. His most vulnerable and honest music to date, the expansive collection of lo-fi indie pop songs convey the intense uncertainty we face alongside the thrills of excitement, transformation, and possibility.
The 11-track, self-produced LP features “off the grid” alongside previous offerings “u dont kno me,” a jangle-pop gem which speaks to the exasperating feeling of being stuck in a tedious cycle, and the bright and effervescent “cant celebrate” that touches on a personal yet somewhat superstitious belief that you can’t celebrate something until it’s final. off the grid has already received early support from Entertainment Tonight, BBC Radio 1, Apple Music’s The Chart Show, FLOOD Magazine, Ones To Watch, and idobi Radio among others and landed Yot Club on a variety of playlists including Apple Music’s Untitled as well as Spotify’s New Music Friday, All New Indie, Indie Brandneu, and Indie Arrivals, and on the cover of the Lo-Fi Indie playlist.
Under the moniker Yot Club, Ryan catapulted from making Soundcloud demos in the corner of his bedroom to a viral sensation with major labels knocking down the door following the release of his Gold-certified single "YKWIM?." Choosing to further pursue his musical career, Ryan signed with independent label amuse and continued to piece together the sound he feels best represents who he is as a musician — writing, recording, mixing, and mastering all of his own music. off the grid serves as a follow up to last year’s exquisite EP, Santolina, and expands on Yot Club’s signature sound: a charming, mischievous, and carefully-curated mix of watery bedroom guitar pop, hyper, lo-fi indie rock, wonky power pop, and trippy, bleached surf rock. To date, Yot Club has amassed over 310 million streams and garnered media support from the likes of Wonderland, American Songwriter, Hollywood Life, Earmilk, and Notion, among others, making him an artist to watch in 2022.
Following the release of the album, this summer Yot Club will hit the road supporting Penelope Scott from June 17th to the 25th before joining Vansire for a string of dates from July 8th to the 21st. Tickets are on sale now, more details here - full routing below.
