Twenty-two year old TREVOR POWERS, whose musical venture is called YOUTH LAGOON, 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. 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 doesn't make sense. So he wrote an album about it entitled 'The Year Of Hibernation'. Powers explains, "For my whole life Ive dealt with extreme anxiety. Not anxiety about passing a test or somewhat normal things, but weird.. bizarre things. Things that only I know. I sometimes feel like I'm 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 don't think I could ever write a completely happy album. It's not that I'm not a happy person," claims Powers, "but I just have too many things in my mind that haunt me." LP includes a bonus 7-inch and download card.
