Listen: Youth Lagoon shares new song, ‘I’ve Seen’

Trevor Powers writes a “farewell song” to his ‘Savage Hills Ballroom’ album.

Youth Lagoon aka Trevor Powers has unveiled ‘I’ve Seen’, an additional track revealed two months on from latest album ‘Savage Hills Ballroom’.

Powers is billing the new track as a “farewell song” to his recent LP. The record came out in September, and Powers says it’s “grounded in satire.”

“It is a microcosm of a perfect society, decorated in gold & elegance to serve as a mockery of how we present ourselves to those around us,” he adds.

‘I’ve Seen’ starts with simple, lulling piano lines, before closer resembling the amped up state ‘Savage Hills Ballroom’ specialises in. Listen below.
