California native Trevor Powers has already released albums under the name Youth Lagoon. However August 17th sees the release of the first full studio album under his own name Mulberry Violence.
A student of classical theory, jazz and ancient modes, all are still evident in his distinctly modern sound. Powers early music was influenced by artists such as Francis Bacon, Sister Gertrude Morgan and Harry Clarke. Powers would line his walls with artists’ works and found the graphic saturation helped inform the social and spiritual themes of his music.
