The songs that make up YACHT’s I Believe in You. Your Magic is Real. travel well; they’re wide and warm-hearted, not unlike Bechtolt himself, bouncing without pretension from iPod to turntable, as buoyant and easy in a middle schooler’s bedroom as they are echoing across a huge crowd, pouring from a jukebox, or woven thoughtfully into a mix tape.
What makes these songs so accessible - apart from their undeniable vigor, or their fractured, crystalline pop sensibility - is the strength of their objective. Behind the beats and the choruses, which come from left-field and bloom into frenetic dance breaks, are big ideas about how positive thinking, optimism, and luck can replace blind faith in a world without a lot of white gloves, wands, or magic.
