This month marks the 10-year anniversary of YACHT, the wacky electropop outfit from Portland, Oregon. To celebrate the occasion, the band has recorded an awesome new track titled "Second Summer", which comes paired with an equally awesome animated video. The video, directed by ADHD, stems from the band's appreciation of the director's previous work:
We’ve been unabashed fans of ADHD & Ben Jones’ work since his days with the art collective Paper Rad and jumped at the opportunity to channel his rare strain of visual damage into YACHT’s world. This video represents the ultimate manifestation of our spirit animal, the Smiangle, morphing from an impersonal signifier of mystical subtext into something completely alive, surreal, and psychotropic."
Watch the animated goodness below. As well, in even more celebratory news, YACHT will be performing at the Echoplex in Los Angeles on December 8th. If you're a longtime fan of the band and live in the L.A. area, make sure to get your ass over there tomorrow night.
