Premiere: Mammoth Life – “Lights Out”

Video Premiere: Mammoth Life – "Making Moves"
Dreamy pop outfit Mammoth Life moved from Kansas to San Francisco in November 2011, a move partially inspired by fellow Kansans Mates of State who made a similar move several years prior. Like any band making such a drastic change, Mammoth Life wrote a song about it: "Making Moves" off their self-titled LP released earlier this year. The video, which we're happy to premiere today, features iconic and dreamy vintage footage of San Francisco that makes the changes the band underwent in the song feel even more important, exciting, and dramatic. Mammoth Life will play a free show October 3 [...]
