Youth Lagoon Release New Song, Announce 2013 Tour
Besides his already announced Western-bound tour dates, Youth Lagoon has just announced plans to perform at this year’s Coachella festival. Very exciting news for fans of the musician, who will also make addition stops in Texas, Nashville and Philly. Initially, Youth Lagoon had only announced seven gigs for the spring, so news of additional shows shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to fans of the neo-pop rocker. Look for him at the Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, WA, followed by a big sold-out show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, on June 5.

Youth Lagoon Tour 2013
Youth Lagoon (aka Trevor Powers) just hit fans with a double-whammy of an announcement – a new song, dubbed “Dropla” (from the upcoming Wondrous Bughouse), well, dropped, and a small batch of tour dates is nearly coming hot and ready out of the oven. With shows planned in Spokane, WA, at the A Club, Missoula, MT, at Badlander, and Salt Lake City, UT, at Kilby Court, Youth Lagoon rounds out this handful of dates by opening for The National before their sold-out show at the Jay-Z-promoted, artfully rusted Barclays Center. There’s also a four-day stint at the Treefort Music Festival in Boise, ID.
Powers, a San Diego, CA, native, describes his music as focusing around themes of “psychological dysphoria and mental distress based around minimalism and hypnotic ambience” – pretty cool stuff! Youth Lagoon’s newest track, “Dropla”, is a real gem, filled with haunting vocals, plucked string arrangements, and a swelling chorus section. Preview it here on Soundcloud, and then pick up his (pre-order now!) sophomore effort Wondrous Bughouse on March 5 via Fat Possum Records.
