Trevor Powers is the genius behind the recent independent electro-pop sensation Youth Lagoon. The more recent hit “Cannons” is nothing short of the word, ‘genius’, as he quickly captures you with a familiarly beautiful keyboard riff. Having released this track about 3 months ago it is hardly new this age of music, but it’s definitely new to me and I’m sure many more. Currently Trevor hosts the Youth Lagoon name on a number of music and social networks for his fans to interact and share his growing music catalogue.
This Boise, Idaho native has made his mark in the European circuit, and with that growing fan base he has sparked the interest of Youth Lagoon’s current independent label Fat Possum Records. With only 3 tracks on soundcloud, it is only the beginning for this modern day composer, with a sure-to-be bright future in store for Youth Lagoon and Trevor Powers altogether. As I’m sure you noticed the “Free Download” mention at the top, simply visit Youth Lagoon’s bandcamp site for 2 free downloads including “Cannons”.
