New Download: YACHT “Dystopia”

Click image to listen/download YACHT's "Dystopia"

On Shangri-La, (the new album out June 21st) YACHT asserts that the future is a blank slate upon which anything can be imposed.
 
Shangri-La argues that “Paradise is kinetic potential, a latency within us that has been eaten alive by time.” In line with the existing emphasis on self-empowerment in the YACHT philosophy, YACHT’s idea of “Utopia” is personal. They believe that the only real sustainable paradise is in our minds, and hence creative output can be a tangible piece of the Utopia within each individual.
 
Shangri-La literally is YACHT’s Utopia, a place made of songs.
