About Youth Lagoon
Trevor Powers, aka Youth Lagoon, made quite an impression with the release of his debut album "The Year of Hibernation" in 2010. That's because the project was based around the idea of psychological dysphoria, and Powers says he tried to document the trails of his mind through songs of minimalism and hypnotic ambiance.
If this sounds like some sort of pitch for psychological profiling … it probably is…and isn't. After all, Powers has described his writing process as "my mind communicating with me, not the other way around...it can take me to scary places but I've realized those bizarre thoughts I have don't define me."
After signing with Mississippi-based label Fat Possum Records in 2011, Powers toured much of the following year before taking more time off to write what would become his next record. That critically acclaimed sophomore album,"Wondrous Bughouse," dropped March 5, 2013 through Fat Possum, and was spawned from what Powers describes as "becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world."
"Wondrous Bughouse" drew instant comparisons to the likes of Pink Floyd and the Flaming Lips, and others have said his songs are reminiscent of Perfume Genius, whose piano-centric debut set him for a breakout debut in 2010.
The Houston Press named Youth Lagoon's video for "Raspberry Cane" one of their Top 25 Music Videos of 2013. In fact, he clocked in at No. 5 on the list, with the publication nothing it was near equal to the haunting, apocalyptic "July" that made No. 2 on the list in 2012.
