Published Jan 14, 2014Portland-via-Los Angeles dance pop crew YACHT have finally followed up their 2011 Shangri-La LP with the release of a new single called "Plastic Soul."
The band explained the retro-futurist pop song with the following statement:
It's 2014, and you've awoken to find yourself alone for the first time in months. Your serotonin levels are at an all-time low. For as long as you can remember, you've been relentlessly battered by millions of corporate dollars targeted directly at your valuable eyeballs. And it's still boring. Snapchat sucks. You've even worn out the most exciting long-player that came wrapped in non-disclosure agreements just to delight you. When you think you're losing it, this is your theme song.
The song's coinciding video features footage of the band chilling at a house party and soaking up some rays in the great outdoors. It was filmed in Alabama, and also includes small-town skateboarding and fireworks.
