Trevor Powers is an over-laugher. Some might attribute it to nerves, but in the hands of the 22-year-old, better known by the stage moniker Youth Lagoon, over-laughing becomes a semi-consciously employed device to put his fellow interlocutor at ease. Finding myself in this position (and similarly prone to the gratuitous guffaw), I’m grateful that Powers – the lo-fi musician whose atmospheric debut LP The Year Of Hibernation was released last year to high acclaim – is chortling so heartily. His over-laughing feeds mine, and the enthusiasm of our conversation rapidly builds until it reminds me of a pair of children playing make believe, or two old friends giddily exchanging photos of their grandkids.
