Youth Lagoon – Mute

Title: Mute

Artist: Youth Lagoon

Genre: Indie Rock

This is the longest song we’ve heard by Youth Lagoon, going about for nearly six minutes. When I noticed that I thought to myself: “This better be epic!”. And it is. Trevor Powers is the master of a very strange state of mind. His music takes you to a place between warm, steady, soft and welcoming, while retaining that harsh metallic sound he loves so much, at the same time. He’s the certain guy you’d want to go to to look for a stoned happy time. You wouldn’t listen to this if you’re angry. “Mute” pushes that feeling to glorious extremes. If you close your eyes and listen, you can see his dreams.
