Yacht Rock Revue reinterprets CSNY’s ‘Our House’ with quarantine video

Yacht Rock Revue has utilized its COVID-19 quarantine to bring comfort to fans with their newly reimagined version of the CSNY classic, “Our House.”

Frontman Nicholas Niespodziani and creative collaborator (and sister) Gina used YouTube to create a video that involved all of the band members against similar backdrops (watch it below). 

As for the song, the YRR version floats along with smooth synthesizers and pristine harmonies.

“It felt like it needed a hint of melancholy... cause 2020,” Niespodziani said about the band’s recast. “I wanted to dig into the idea of our houses - since we all feel stuck in them right now - and how we can still be together even when we’re apart.” 

Yacht Rock Revue also includes Pete Olson, David B. Freeman, Greg Lee, Mark Cobb, Mark Dannells, Mark Bencuya, Keisha Jackson and Kourtney Jackson.

Niespodziani recently talked with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about how the band’s touring plans have changed following the release earlier this year of their first album of original material, “Hot Dads in Tight Jeans.”

While YRR won’t be able to fully hit the road until later this summer at the earliest (they have an Oct. 24 date slated for the Coca-Cola Roxy), the band is participating in the July 10 Indianapolis stop of Live Nation’s newly announced “Drive-In Concert Tour.”
