A casual listener could be forgiven for missing Youth Lagoon's dark streak. Trevor Powers presents with a fragile voice, wide-eyed promo shots, fantastical album titles, and right, the name "Youth Lagoon". But there's a bleak perspective below the surface: "July" was an emotionally austere breakup letter, "Attic Doctor" a grotesque nightmare of medical atrocities, "Dropla" a plea for a dying family member to pull through. On "The Knower", the lyrics are stinging and judgmental and you know it right away.
Youth Lagoon is set to release a new album, Savage Hills Ballroom (out Sept. 25), and a few savvy fans have already gotten a taste. Late last week, the band surprise-dropped a limited 7" record of its new single "The Knower" at local record stores around the world. Now, the rest of us can hear the song, which points to Youth Lagoon's latest evolution. It also finds him grappling with personal pain, as he ruminates on and tries to understand the experiences and stories of others. Like so many Youth Lagoon songs, "The Knower" allows its intimacy to give way to something grander, as a regal trumpet melody (and then a full horn-section fanfare), electronically triggered vocal percussives, and the trilling of countless synths all build to a celebratory moment. It's a dynamic, uplifting crescendo that reflects Youth Lagoon's boundless creativity - and perhaps mirrors Powers' own journey to growth and change.
