YACHT Loves La-La Land

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Fri, Feb 17, 2012 at 10:25 AM

YACHT have moved to LA. So the new video clip for the title track from their most recent album, Shangri-La, fittingly sees the former Portland band gamboling around their new home, doing what people in LA do: drinking smoothies, wearing white, doing tai chi, surfing, eating ice cream (to offset the nasty effects of those smoothies, of course), listening to Randy Newman's "I Love LA" for hours on repeat.

The chorus mentions both LA and West Texas (where YACHT spent some time during their Marfa period) but the song really about the utopia of the mind, man... Sorry, I got a little carried away there. Um, did anybody notice the very YACHT-esque triangular light flares in the video (instead of normal circular ones) or did I put some iffy creamer in my coffee?
