Youth Lagoon "Highway Patrol Stun Gun" (video)

Youth Lagoon "Highway Patrol Stun Gun" (video)
Before Youth Lagoon takes us to the Savage Hills Ballroom on September 25, songwriter Trevor Powers is evidently spending some time hanging out with a dude in a gold mask. That's what we see in the video for the track "Highway Patrol Stun Gun."

The clip adds a sense of lighthearted fun to the stately, swooning piano-rock song. We see footage of Powers and his gold-faced friend chumming it up around New York City, doling out random high-fives, playing basketball, bowling and dancing like goofs. This is mixed with moments of cinematic, slo-mo intensity, creating an interesting contrast in moods.

Scroll past Youth Lagoon's tour schedule to watch the Kendy Ty-directed clip.

Savage Hills Ballroom will arrive through Fat Possum.
