If you’ve had the chance to see Jona Bechtolt and Claire Evans, but didn’t, stop that nonsense right now. My first time was FYF last year and ever since I heard about the promise of the Western Utopian American Triangle and saw Claire scaling a giant speaker with an LA Metro train passing behind at twilight, I knew I needed to have a chat with them. I was psyched to get my chance at Outside Lands this year and the duo was just as friendly and intriguing as I imagined. We talked very little music (they get enough of that), but we did prattle on about aliens, the perfect day, science and how they’re inadvertently tapped into luxury boating culture. Have a listen to my YACHT interview below and you’ll like them even more than you already do. Pinky swear.
