The Needle Drop

YACHT- "Utopia"

New MusicadminComment

The second track to drop from YACHT's forthcoming album, Shangri-La, which is looking at a June 21st release on DFA Records. We've already dropped “Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)," but this track is much more nimble.

"Utopia" does flips over quick guitar chords and a speedy disco bassline. I love how the doubled vocals lay so cultishly against each other in this song, too. I just picture a group of 30-somethings dance in multi-colored track suits to a crowd of people they're trying to fool into joining in with some sort of pyramid scheme--that's how I see it anyway.
