Youth Lagoon

Youth Lagoon (aka Trevor Powers) recently kicked off a tour in support of his upcoming debut, The Year of Hibernation, out September 27 on Fat Possum. He makes his NYC debut on that tour on Monday (9/12) at Mercury Lounge with Young Magic. Tickets are still available for that show, and for the Glasslands show and the other Mercury show that are part of a string of shows with Gardens & Villa. The Glasslands show is also with Gem Club. Updated dates are listed below. You can see a picture from the recent Phoenix show above. A live video from the same show can be watched below.

Youth Lagoon recently made a video for the epic album track “Montana.” The video was directed by Tyler T Williams, who has also directed videos for Craft Spells and Coma Cinema. The video tells the story of a young boy whose father goes off to war in what appears to be 1950s suburban America and ends with the boy in present time finding his father’s ghost. It’s got an interesting adjacency to the song’s lyrics which explore growth and spirit.

Watch the video and the live video with the dates below…
