Portland electropop band YACHT shared a new song and video for “L.A. Plays Itself” but there’s a catch. You can only listen to the song on playsitself.la when Uber surge pricing in Los Angeles is up. When Uber prices double, a new remix of “L.A. Plays Itself” by Darq E Freaker will stream on that site too. Interesting. Althought the band hails from the Pacific Northwest, they call Los Angeles home and are pretty familiar with the traffic situation. Watch singer Claire L. Evans explain the reason for this cool concept in the above video.
Listen to “I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler” below.
Their sixth album I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler is out October 16th via Downtown Records.
