Though a new album isn’t in the pipeline yet, Evans—in typical fashion—sees a plethora of possibilities.
YACHT (or “Young Americans Challenging High Technology“) was launched in Portland in 2002, the brainchild of Jona Bechtolt (formerly of The Blow), who released three albums on his own seeking to fuse the sounds of technology and traditional pop.

Evans was skimming the news one day, she told me, when she saw a headline that caught her attention: “It was something like ‘Monkey Brains Used to Telepathically Control Robotic Hands’ or something similarly outlandish that made me stop and think, ‘Man, what is going in science?!
'” It was a call to arms of sorts for Evans, who now divides her time between YACHT and writing popular nonfiction about space and “abject” biology.
