Electronic avant-pop outfit YACHT will be hitting the road this March. Formerly the solo project of Jona Bechtolt (who Vibe Magazine dubbed â€œindie rockâ€™s Timbalandâ€), YACHT has since expanded to include new full-time member Claire L. Evans. Donâ€™t miss the duoâ€™s notoriously energetic, lovably quirky live show. For the uninitiated: expect a mix of idiosyncratic dance moves, video art, and of course banging beats.
Joining YACHT is brooklyn dream-pop trio Chairlift, whose critically-acclaimed debut album, Does You Inspire You, is available now on iTunes.”
Look out for YACHTâ€™s forthcoming full-length See Mystery Lights in the late spring, on DFA. This will be their second release with their new label, after last yearâ€™s Summer Song EP. In case you slept on it last time around, check out the video for the title track here.
A link to stream the full EP is available upon request.
