Electronic avant-pop outfit YACHT will be hitting the road this March. Formerly the solo project of Jona Bechtolt (who Vibe Magazine dubbed “indie rock’s Timbaland”), YACHT has since expanded to include new full-time member Claire L. Evans.
Don’t miss the duo’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 YACHT’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 year’s Summer Song EP.
