Cool Hunting Video Presents: YACHT

Portland-based indie-dance progenitor Yacht explains how he melds the grunge aesthetic with electronic music technology

Episode 86 follows grunge-pop superstar YACHT (aka Jona Bechtolt) to a show on an actual yacht, around his Portland, OR apartment and on tour. He shows off his spastic cheerleader-meets-Ian Curtis dance moves, talks tech and introduces his cat and best friend Whiskers. This video is only a glimpse into the life of one of the most promising young, rising laptop rockers out there, but it’s a comprehensive glimpse.
