Youth Lagoon is Trevor Powers, a 22 year old musician from Boise. He recently released two awesome tracks, 'Cannons' and 'July', which you can grab for free over at his bandcamp. Powers makes really deceptively lo-fi feeling music which is all about the gradual buildup; both tracks open with twinkling piano lines before subdued percussion and vocals filter in, further building with guitar and overdubbed vocal harmonies, developing what initially appears as melancholy into music of a more soaring, euphoric nature.
His debut LP, 'The Year of Hibernation' is released digitally on Juno Beach Records on July 5th, with a 10" format release scheduled soon after.
