Trevor Powers - Debütalbum "Mulberry Violence" erscheint im August
Nach dem starken Opener "Playwright" und dem zugehörigen Video, geht Powers musikalisch dunkle, aber kraftvolle Reise noch tiefer in Mark und Bein.

Nach dem offiziellen Ende seines vorherigen Projekts Youth Lagoon 2015, schuf er über zwei Jahre lang eine eigene Bibliothek mit grotesken und verzaubernden Klängen, die als Rückgrat seiner Gedichte dienen sollten, die er auf Reisen zwischen Europa, Asien und den Vereinigten Staaten geschrieben hatte. Er kombinierte dabei eine Mischung aus Noise, Pop und avantgardistischen Atmosphären und formte diese Experimente zu Liedern, die den Schnittpunkt von Einheit und Chaos, Albträumen und den unsichtbaren Kräften des menschlichen Seins und seinem Leid hervorheben.

"Mulberry Violence" VÖ: 17.08.18

Trevor Powers Statement zu der Ankündigung von "Mulberry Violence"

"Early chronicles have long enveloped mulberry trees in legend. Some say they're the link between heaven and earth. Others say the red berries are stained from the blood of star-crossed lovers. For over 5,000 years, medicine has been made from their leaves, with some cultures claiming them to be a miracle remedy or even the key to eternal life. Although many stories and attributes surround the mulberry tree, they are known most for one reigning characteristic ::: wisdom. Mulberries wait until the danger of frost is completely gone before they begin to bud, at which point the budding occurs overnight. They are patient. They are restrained. They are calculated. They are everything we're not.

We are tornadoes, sweeping the fields - mutable and unsettled. Storms of impulse; units of destruction. Often our instincts are misguided / lashing out rather than soaking in silence, tuning in to the whispers. Violence is king, and we are its servants ::: eager to please, trained in frenzy, and knowing little else. Since infancy, we've grown used to hearing words far opposite the examples we've been shown. We've been told to douse fires, but we've been handed a torch. Should it be a surprise that the world is burning?

Mulberry Violence is the intersection between these two dimensions. It is where stillness meets pandemonium. Dead air meets babel. Harmony meets war. Sisters from the same womb, separated at birth. It serves as a personal document of the everlasting battle inside of us. No one has it figured out; least of all me."
