Song Of The Week

Akira’s Song of the Week is a beautiful live performance which comes from the amazing Youth Lagoon, American-born 22 year old Trevor Powers. ‘Posters’ is the opening track from his 2011 album ‘The Year of Hibernation’, a record written after the break down of a 4 year relationship. Powers quotes in an interview with Pitchfork – “I write most of my songs in my bedroom, so I like that whole aspect of closing the door and making a song myself… I just wanted to write honest songs. So much music nowadays is really shallow. There’s not much heart or emotion in it.” Read the full interview here – http://pitchfork.com/news/43359-rising-youth-lagoon/ and find more Youth Lagoon in our Akira Playlists –
