'Shangri-La' by YACHT

It’s funny when you live with someone, you end up listening to music that you might not normally seek out (or want to listen to at all). The former was the case with Shangri-La by YACHT, the self-titled track from their newest album which came out about 4 months ago. The song is immensely catchy, I have the melody and chorus in my head all the time. It’s such a positive sounding song, there’s something about it that makes me want to blast it while I’m driving in the car, irregardless of the weather outside. Here’s my favorite part of the song:

St. Peter, don’t you call me ’cause I can’t go
I love my friends in hell, as above and so below
When the rapture comes, if you don’t mind
I’ll be waiting down here and sweating

    I most definitely agree with your statement in this post . I have had so many eye opening musical experiences that I didn’t think would have ever occured due to roommates !
    YACHT is one of these experiences , and actually with Shrangi-La I initially disliked the song a lot . Though after listening to it a couple of times whilst paying attention to the lyrics I kind of fell in love . It is definitely a car song and it indeed breaks weather boundaries as music tends not to do .

    Love the album. And your website, but “irregardless”? Yuck!

    Ok honestly i’ve gone through every mixtape you’ve released on this site and i cannot quite peg what it is that whets your taste. “Dystopia(The Earth is on Fire)” is a much better song. You could’ve even gone with “I Walked Alone.” Anyway great work on the site. I have it set to open automatically with GChrome. I’ll submit a mix soon.
