“Stone Cold Lover” is one of 12 songs from Mato Wayuhi’s forthcoming album, Part-Time Indian.
Wayuhi says the video for ““Stone Cold Lover” was created by “a stellar cast and crew who gave life to an idea. I can never thank them enough. I’m extremely grateful [Blood Run] let us film there. The drummers are all talented men who brought a very powerful energy to the video.”
Part-Time Indian is Wayuhi’s first album. “Most of it was recorded in Sioux Falls and Los Angeles,” says Wayuhi. “A few little whispers here and there I snagged in Pine Ridge and New York City. Shout out to my uncles, aunties, and cousins in Pine Ridge who heard a sneak peek of the album. It’s all for family.”
Part-Time Indian album comes out August 17 on iTunes and Spotify. The single for "Stone Cold Lover" is available on Spotify now at this link. Album release show is Sunday, August 26 at Total Drag Records in Sioux Falls.
Wayuhi also performs with Elevated Rebellion at Icon Lounge, Sioux Falls, on Aug. 24 & opens for Soulcrate’s farewell show at the That Sounds Decent music festival, Aug. 25, at 8th & Railroad, Sioux Falls.
Originally from Sioux Falls, Mato Wayuhi studies film at the University of Southern California. Earlier this year, his video “Strawberry Poptart,” recorded with the band Treehorse, was selected by NPR Music as a 2018 Tiny Desk Concert Favorite.
