Youth Lagoon – Mute

Muting this is the last thing I want to do. Youth Lagoon aka Trevor Powers has gone from making timid, glacial and textural songs to something different altogether. Powers has developed his music from into bigger, wider waters and sounds all the better for it. Whilst making this shift in sound could expose weaknesses it instead raises Youth Lagoon’s game to a whole new level. The trademarks are all there still, the frailty in his voice and ear for soothing melody, but this time it’s braver, more ready for the world to listen in. New album Wondrous Bughouse is out 5th March.
