Philly indie rock’s backseat driver Lily McKown has released the music video for her latest single “Yarko’s House.” Nostalgia galore, “Yarko’s House” sees McKown reminiscing over her old hangout spot, remembering teenage games of marco polo, buying cheap beer and getting caught, and the excitement of having a free house to party at, all sung over sparkly guitars and a smooth, grooving beat.

The music video comes less than a month after the song’s release and lightheartedly recreates the sentiments throughout the track. Opening on a shot of McKown awkwardly standing in the middle of a party, presumably at a friend named Yarko’s house, the film redirects to a poolside hangout, seeing Yarko, played by Jared Dobkin, spraying down a “poor Frankie Muniz” with a nearby hose. The film flashes between the pool, the party, and clips of McKown playing guitar as it follows her lyrics like a vivid memory, giving listeners a look inside of how McKown remembers those carefree glory days.

Lily McKown is a Philly-raised UArts graduate and has worked with names such as Molly Germer (Alex G, Japanese Breakfast), Max Kulicke (American Trappist, Carroll), Alan Douches (Sufjan Stevens, Fleetwood Mac) and more since her musical debut in 2019. Her debut album Backseat Driver came out in 2020 and was well received, garnering attention and praise from WXPN, The Philadelphia Globe, Gold Flake Paint, and Post-Trash.
