Youth Lagoon - The Year Of Hibernation

Youth Lagoon is the beautifully eerie creation of one Trevor Powers, a young man who has gone through the trials and tribulations of school, romance and relationships and then seen fit to craft music around those experiences like many have before him.

However The Year Of Hibernation is such a fragile and affecting collection of songs, it’s hard to come to terms with the fact that this guy is just 22 years old. Whether it’s the woozy, youthful nostalgia of opening track ‘Posters’ with its warm drones and clicking percussion or the twinkling, fairytale-like ambience that surrounds ‘Afternoon’, Powers has a knack for pulling at the old heart strings. Never is this more apparent than on the stunning ‘July’, beginning with sparse, sweet vocals and a simple piano melody before the drums build up to a triumphant, shouting crescendo that only the coldest of human beings wouldn fail to be moved by. If The Year Of Hibernation is the sound of Trevor Powers finding his feet musically, then I can only imagine the beauty still to come.
