Youth Lagoon unveils new non-album track "I've Seen"

03 December 2015, 19:06 | Written by Laurence Day

Youth Lagoon, aka Trevor Powers, has shared a new non-album single called "I've Seen".

Revealing the track, Powers wrote:

"Throughout the months I worked on Savage Hills Ballroom, I became possessed by a concept. If we had the ability to accept our blemishes, seeing that it's our fuck ups & flaws that make us distinct & force us to advance as individuals & as a society, we could start understanding each other. The world swims in judgement. It makes us feel good to think someone else is worse than us. We're born into this mindset - & much of it is rooted in self-loathing rather than merely learning from our weaknesses. We bury who we really are because we don't think anyone will accept us. SHB is 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. I wrote I've Seen as a farewell song to this ballroom..just gonna stay a while longer. See you outside. +++ WASTING 4 U +++"

Savage Hills Ballroom is out now on Fat Possum.
