Campus Connections: Shangri-La Video

20 Feb

YACHT, coming off their very successful album in Shangri-La, has recently put out a music video for the title track off the album. Noe I usually forget that this song is on the album because it is drastically different from everything else on the album. Then again, it is a ballad.

Anyways, the video isn’t trippy, or weird in any sense. Unless you count everyone wearing white as really weird. Anyways, there’s not too much to this video. A song about utopia, the video shows the duo with a bunch of people dressed in white, doing yoga, surfing, eating ice cream……party animals.

It’s interesting, and a good fit to the song, so check it out.
