Youth Lagoon drops first single from Wondrous Bughouse.
Youth Lagoon, the project of experimental bedroom artist Trevor Powers, has released the first single from his recently announced sophomore LP, Wondrous Bughouse, out March 5th through Fat Possum. The song is titled, “Dropla”. Download it below.
The new album is a result of what Powers says, “becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world.”
“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,” explains Powers.
“My mental state is usually pretty sporadic… a lot of this record was influenced by a fear of mortality but embracing it at the same time. Realizing that human life is only great because it is temporary. Experimenting with ideas about dimensions. I’m not a gifted speaker, so explaining things is difficult for me. But music always makes sense.”
