Youth Lagoon was the stage name of the Boise, Idaho-based American musician Trevor Powers, active as Youth Lagoon from 2010-2016. His music was described as net-psychedelia, and included elements of Americana and experimental. Youth Lagoon’s debut album, The Year of Hibernation, was released in 2011, based on minimalism and hypnotic ambience melded with atmospheric and electronic elements. The debut explored themes such as psychological dysphoria and mental distress. Powers’ second album, Wondrous Bughouse, was released in 2013. It was spawned from what he described as “becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world.” During the time he composed the album, Powers became intrigued with the metaphysical universe and blending those ideas with pop music. Powers’ tour in support of Wondrous Bughouse was cut short due to the death of a close friend. In 2015 he released “The Knower,” a free single-sided 7″ single, that marked the announcement of his third album, Savage Hills Ballroom, which was released in 2015. In 2016, Powers announced on Twitter that his Youth Lagoon project was concluding.
