Youth Lagoon announced the first single off its sophomore album, Wondrous Bughouse. The song, titled “Dropla”, can be heard on Soundcloud.
Trevor Powers, whose uses the stage name Youth Lagoon, came onto the music scene in 2012, with his debut album, The Year of Hibernation. The album was based around the idea of psychological dysphoria.
Powers says this album spawned from what he describes as becoming more “fascinated by the human psyche and where the spiritual world meets the physical world.”
Powers describes the writing process of his first album as a way for his mind to communicate with his body, not the other way around. It seems the same can be said for his latest album.
Youth Lagoon’s Wondrous Bughouse is due out March 5. On tour now, Powers will be at A Club in Spokane, WA on Feb. 25. For a full schedule, visit the label’s page.
