for their 5th album, yacht have come up with a concept to provide a rich creative vein to tap in to. yacht believes that the only real sustainable paradise is in our minds & hence creative output can be a tangible piece of the utopia within each individual. 'shangri-la' literally is yacht's utopia - a place made of songs. these songs utilise a wealth of electronics & more conventional sounds such as colourful synths, expandable basslines, electric guitar & effected vocals. it’s a damn danceable affair full of punk-funk-floorfillers that goes to show jona bechtolt & claire l. evans have come up trumps again. “yacht have concocted a record to match their peers in metronomy, cut copy & friendly fires” – drowned in sound.
