[video] Y△CHT - "Utopia and Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)

I had the pleasure of spending a little time with YCHT back in April when they played on Tulane's campus. They are truly unique and interesting people. Sometimes you encounter someone, and you just get this overwhelming, instinctual feeling that they are actually from the future. This is how I felt with Y△CHT. In addition to their insightful electro-pop, the Oregon band also freely shares their philosophy on life.

Watch the video below for a glimpse into their world. It's a short film/double music video directed by Rene Daalder for the tracks "Utopia" and "Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire)" from their new album Shangri-La, freshly out from James Murphy's DFA Records.
