A Message from YACHT:
This is “too close for comfort cosplay,” like nobody noticing you parted your hair on the wrong side. The world of wellness and social media lifestyle brands (#vanlife) is our generation’s back to the land movement, a fantasy of escape from the rat race and from the darkness of our millennial prospects.
We want to highlight how much thought and work goes into the appearance of effortlessness. Kibu (pronounced key-boo) is our lifestyle brand. Kibu is Ubik backwards. Ubik is a novel by Philip K. Dick about a spray that holds reality in place. Kibu is a real product. Kibu is a real brand. Kibu Mist is coming soon, in an exclusive collaboration with P.F. Candle Company. Learn more about Kibu here.
A quote from director Kailee McGee:
“Everyone is faking it to an extent, especially in Los Angeles. We carefully mold our social media personas and frequently value posting evidence of a good experience more than the actual experience. I wanted to make a funny and subversive video about the pressure we feel to keep up a veil of effortless and abundant perfection.”
WHAT ELSE HAS YACHT BEEN DOING?
We’ve been hard at work:
- Claire’s book Broad Band, a feminist history of the Internet, will be out March 6th 2018 with Penguin Random House.
- We were awarded two grants to restore the Triforium, a 1975 polyphonoptic sculpture in Downtown Los Angeles.
- We’ve started production on a documentary with MEMORY about our next album, both out before the end of 2018.
- We released a new EP of five songs called Strawberry Moon.
Strawberry Moon is out now on Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, free download, and cassette on Gnar Tapes.
