Single Review – Youth Lagoon – The Knower

Idaho’s Trevor Powers is about to embark on the release of Youth Lagoon’s third album titled Savage Hills Ballroom which is out on September 25th. The new single from it is ‘The Knower’ and it features Power’s gentle, yet unnerving falsetto set around ringing samples and electronica, rattling percussion and solemn blasts of a trumpet. As the song progresses, standard percussion intervenes and the brass takes on a more prominent role, reaching higher notes. From this the song ends on an ever growing peak. A song full of interesting combinations to deliver his brutally honest and slightly pessimistic lyrical content on people’s misconceptions of themselves.
