Youth Lagoon - Highway Patrol Stun Gun

Whilst it took me a while to be fully won over by Youth Lagoon's recent surprise 7" vinyl 'The Knower', his latest single Highway Patrol Stun Gun tells a whole different story. In comparative views, with its rousing brass sections and miss mash of experimental electronic bleeps the latter gave a clear insight in his more liberal-edged ideas. Here things are a lot more straight forward though. It's most definitely the sentimental Youth Lagoon we've grown to love, back with a refined sound that's filled with optimism and gratifying hope. Probably a good thing as the track centres around the rise in recent police brutality. Take a listen to the piano rolling number for yourselves below with the accompanying Kendy Ty directed clip. Highway Patrol Stun Gun is taken from Trevor Powers' forthcoming new album entitled 'Savage Hills Ballroom' due September 25, 2015.
