Electro-pop duo, YACHT have released a new song that will make you think. The duo will be dropping their new album, I Thought The The Future Would Be Cooler, this October. The first single shares the same name as the album. The song is being launched with different media platforms, to coincide with their albums theme of us being attached to this digital world. With its electro beats and bouncy synths, the song still gives a message to its listeners. The song covers social media exploitation, police brutality and what we thought technology would be used for, instead of what it is being used for now. Band member, Claire Evans discussed the song by saying,
“There’s nothing more powerful than a pop song in terms of conveying a message succinctly and in a memorable way. If you can get a hook into someone’s brain, you have them forever. It doesn’t even matter if people don’t immediately understand what the song’s about.”
Check out the powerful song below.
