New YACHT Video for “Shangri-La”

YACHT has returned in the midst of touring to release their new video for the title track off their album, Shangri-La. Premiered Friday on LA Times, the video is a document of a perfect day in YACHT’s newly-adopted hometown of Los Angeles, California. From sunrise to sunset, the video follows their movements throughout the sprawling strangeness of the Southland, from ice-cream parlors to beach bonfires.

Shangri-La features dozens of extended members of the YACHT family – fans, collaborators, friends – all sharing a space of the band’s invention, spotted with magical realism. YACHT believes that Utopia, like reality, is not a physical experience, nor one dictated by the boundaries of a particular space. Rather, it’s a movable feast, defined by its capacity to adapt and change to new surroundings.
