International Act YACHT Performs at Laundry!
American electropop group YACHT, will be performing for a ONE NIGHT ONLY show at Laundry, The Curve this 16th of May 2013 (Thursday).
Originally from Portland, Oregon, YACHT started off as a “cross-disciplinary experiment” solo venture for Jona Bechtolt back in 2002 and later became a duo with longtime collaborator Claire L. Evans joining in 2008. Since 2010, YACHT expanded the band by including their best friends Bobby Birdman and Jeffrey Jerusalem as players, collaborators, and tour members to the enterprise.
YACHT’s musical style has been called a combination of free-form electropop and dance punk with alternative rock. Their first full-length album released on DFA Records in 2009 received rave reviews with Rolling Stone magazine hailing it as “precisely programmed digital ear candy” and Billboard magazine calling it “Dreamy pop tracks that sound like artifacts from another planet”.
YACHT has toured around the world with international acts such as LCD Soundsystem (R.I.P.), the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Architecture in Helsinki, and Vampire Weekend and has had the privilege to make remixes for Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon, Phoenix, Neon Indian, Stereolab, RATATAT and Clasixx.
Their performance in Laundry, the Curve on the 16th May is part of their Asian Tour, which will see the group performing for the first time in Kuala Lumpur, a day before their performance in Singapore.
