Second Summer is the forthoming new single on DFA from LA DiscoPop funkers YACHT. Some might remember the track from the Songs to Burn & Sing compilation that came with DFA’s Shut Up & Play The Hits DVD. This is a tightened up version of the track and it;’s due for release later this month.
And it;s a joy to listen to. Quirky, funky, fun as hell, Second Summer melds a Hot Chip-esque groove, a driving Disco beat and firing popcorn synths with some brilliant lyrics and an unexpectedly rousing chorus. Squeaking, squelching synths and a deadpan delivery is always a nice compilation for something a little different, and YACHT mix that up with a Disco beat. It’s an electronic pleasure.
