Ballroom alums and Marfa faves YACHT have a new record out, Shangri-LA, recorded at Marfa Recording Company. Here’s the new double-feature film for two songs from the album, “Utopia & Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire).” Claire explains about the video, directed by Rene Daalder:

“I don’t even really know how to preface this. A huge moment for me, as a maker, to make something with a longtime hero: an eight-minute science fiction architectural epic music video film for YACHT’s “Utopia” and “Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)” directed by Rene Daalder. Rene is a punk rock auteur, a science fiction B-movie creator, a futurist, a radical thinker, and now a mentor.”
