Twenty-two year old Trevor Powers, whose musical venture is called Youth Lagoon (youthlagoon.com), has had a long year. Not because hes been endlessly touring or pursuing some wild dream, but because of life the life of a kid going to college, being in love, dealing with heartache, and just living. Youth Lagoon isnt me. says Powers. Its merely a part of me. I was in and out of different bands in high school and always tried to define myself by what music I played. I tried to find a sense of meaning by being in a band. But it wasnt until this last year when I realized I was more than just music that I was able to create music that means something to me. And that is Youth Lagoon. Throughout the course of 2010, Powers began to write an album about things he had a hard time talking about. He claims that when he tries to talk about it to people, he doesnt make sense. So he wrote an album about it titled The Year of Hibernation. For my whole life Ive dealt with extreme anxiety. says Powers. Not anxiety about passing a test or somewhat normal things, but weird, bizarre things. Things that only I know. I sometimes feel like Im literally being eaten up inside. So I started writing these songs. Not just songs about my anxiety, but about my past and my present. Songs about memories, and all those feelings that those bring. I know that if I can be honest about what is inside my mind, there will be others that will be able to relate to it. Although his music seems somewhat dreamy with the first listen, the lyrics show a different side to the matter. Hidden beneath the melodies is a voice that is eerie yet nostalgic. Powers claims his music is like letting people read his journal. I dont think I could ever write a completely happy album. Its not that Im not a happy person, claims Powers, but I just have
