yacht 'utopia' drops the disco ball

New York (correction: Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon) electro duo YACHT will release Shangri-La on the legendary DFA label June 21. Today, they shared a second single from the album, the disco flavored “Utopia.”

It’s the ying to the yang of previous single “Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire).” You can’t help but smile at the Talking Heads on crank, wild abandon of “Utopia”:

Contrast that with the more deliberate and dour “Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)”:

If you dig the latter track, click the download arrow to the right for a perfectly legal free mp3 from YACHT and DFA. Cheers.


Now the two have been combined in an epic video that you kinda have to see to believe. Enjoy:
