YACHT (Young Americans Challenging High Technology) has a new video out today for their song "I Walked Alone" off their release earlier this year, Shangri-La. The video, directed by Youtube sensation Mitchell Davis, features Jona Bechtolt and partner in crime Claire Evans running around in circles in the desert. They finally end up in all white room, ripping guitar solos and arranging real people like they were mannequins. The duo are boisterously energetic, to say the least, but their manic nature perfectly suits the quirky, off beat tone of the tune. The clip is cut up to match the repeating of certain lines and plays like it's a skipping CD, but the dance moves and high energy delivery make up for the jarring effect. Those with motion sickness be warned. Check out "I Walked Alone" below.
