Be mystified by the magical qualities of the minimalistic, psychedelic pop stylings of Trevor Powers, better known as Youth Lagoon.
Youth Lagoon is the stage name of San Diego born, Boise-raised musician Trevor Powers. Powers is, indeed, a youth to the experimental/minimalistic pop scene, just beginning his musical endeavors in 2010. His 2011 debut album, titled The Year of Hibernation, put to music the musings of Powers’ deep mind. Two years later marked the release of his second album, Wondrous Bughouse, which emerged from Powers’ curiosity and intrigue over the human psyche.
We’re about to help you make your upcoming Monday night a little more interesting. Take a venture into the mind of Youth Lagoon when he stops by the 9:30 Club on September 16 as part of the US leg of his tour. We’ll spare you the headache of buying tickets by giving a pair away.
Though his second album hit the shelves earlier this year, Youth Lagoon just recently premiered his video for the track “Raspberry Cane.” It’s all animated … and eerily intriguing.
“Youth Lagoon is something so personal to me because writing music is how I sort my thoughts, as well as where I transfer my fears…”
