YVR Drops New Music Video for “How Have You Been?”
YVR has finally released their new music video for the hit track “How Have You Been?” and it might just give the song a run for its money! The blue-ish violet hues in the music video are especially aesthetic and makes for an amazing viewing experience. The whole music video is tied together with shots of beautiful scenery, whether it be of the city or of the hills. The scenery works surprisingly well with the song. These elements of the music video have a direct influence on making the song feel much more raw and honest, which is perfect for this song specifically. The honest quality of this track also invites fans to develop a deeper understanding of their music.
“How Have You Been?” is the title track for their sophomore EP. The theme of this newest EP is about delving into the deeper meanings of love, passion, relationships, and self-doubt—good for tearing at the heartstrings of their fans. Lyrics like “I ask myself, should I reach out? But I see it in your pictures you look happier now” capture the essence of self-doubt and second-guessing that is all too familiar. This title track (and the whole EP as well) encourages fans to reflect extensively on inner feelings and to explore the delicate relationship between romantic love and self-doubt. The whole EP is perfect for those quiet times alone before you sleep when you find yourself deep in thought about anything and everything. Ever find yourself in that position? Throw “How Have You Been?” on and see where your mind takes you!
YVR are not strangers to the music industry. Even though their debut EP Night Days was only released in 2019, both have been working behind the scenes for a while. The duo act made up of Stephen and Courtney Stahl. Stephen produces and arranges all of their music, and Courtney writes the lyrics and creates the melodies but both are accomplished songwriters in their own right and have been published by SONY/ATV. Courtney has written numerous songs for major international acts such as EXO, Red Velvet, Twice, I.O.I, and Amber Liu to name a few. Meanwhile, Stephen Stahl aka “BUDDRO” has worked with many American and international multi-platinum artists, such as Chris Daughtry, Morgan Page, Bella Thorne, Taeyeon, E-Girls, EDM group Blasterjaxx and many more. He has had songs placed in major movies such as Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Road Chip, Last Vegas, R.L. Stine’s: Mostly Ghostly, and many other TV shows and commercials.
Los Angeles natives YVR are quickly making a name for themselves with ear candy pop sensibility and cleverly crafted songs. In the early days of their music careers, the married couple turned to songwriting as a way to pay the bills but soon found themselves in the far east shaping the global K-Pop sound. With over four million records sold and a combined ten number-one singles (two of which have reached #1 on the Billboard World Album Charts), the duo is ready to start their own artistic journey.Tweet
