YACHT - "Utopia / Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)"


A new "double video" for two new YACHT songs from the duo's recently-released LP Shangri-La. The first song, "Utopia," is a poppy number with some quirky guitar layering and slippery electronic bass sounds. The spatial 3D landscapes and sharp visuals of the video complement the clean-cut sound of the first song. Halfway through the video's 7-minute length, the retro-styled world deteriorates into space and "Dystopia" begins. The darker, but still playful sound of the second cut benefits from the eerie galactic visual stylings in the video's second half. Eventually, Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans are running on treadmills through space. It's a bit of a trip. Check out the double video above, and find the new album on DFA records.
