STREAM: “Second Summer”
YACHT unveils a brand new stand-alone single & video today: “Second Summer” (think the opposite of Christmas in July) – video directed by ADHD. Also of note: YACHT is turning ten years old! To celebrate, YACHT is throwing a 10th Anniversary celebration on Dec. 8 in Los Angeles at the Echoplex. The performance will feature material from all eras and line-ups of the band, with special guests, surprises and prizes and party favors for the audience!
About the video:
“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.” -YACHT
On the song:
“Second Summer” is a state of mind: overcoming obstacles in order to be close to what you love, a temporal place where sun never goes out no matter what season it is in your hemisphere. Like the original Summer of Love and its acid house revival, the Second Summer of Love, our aim is true: to create environments of total freedom.
