Interview: Youth Lagoon

Monday 23rd December, 2013 11:20AM

Trevor Powers is the solo artist behind moniker Youth Lagoon, and who released his critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Wondrous Bughouse earlier this year. The album discusses Powers' fascination with isolation and mortality and the interactivity of the two, which is the central theme of Powers' work since he released his debut album The Year of Hibernation in 2011. It is not, however, about being physically isolated or physically alive, and is instead about the internal struggle some people - Powers included - face when they attempt to connect with the world and to understand their fragile existence within it. It's heavy subject matter but - as in his songs - Powers discusses it with a kind of poetic whimsy utilized by classic novels and usually reserved for more positive subject matter. This makes Powers' perspective on this subject matter both unique and optimistic, and UnderTheRadar caught up with him to discuss the circumstances and influences that nurtured this approach.
