Youth Lagoon premieres the second official music video from his sophomore LP ‘Wondrous Bughouse’ today, the Stephen McNally directed ‘Raspberry Cane’.

Trevor Powers, whose stage name is Youth Lagoon, began writing his debut album ‘The Year of Hibernation’ in 2010. Based around the idea of psychological dysphoria, Powers tried to document the trails of his mind through songs of minimalism and hypnotic ambience. After signing with Mississippi-based label Fat Possum Records in 2011, he toured much of the following year before going back into solitude to write.

Wondrous Bughouse, Powers’ sophomore album was spawned from what he describes as “becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world.” During the time he wrote, Powers became intrigued with the metaphysical universe and blending those ideas with pop music.


Forthcoming tour dates:

31st – Whelans, Dublin
