Stephan McNally helms directing duties for Youth Lagoon’s latest video. Raspberry Cane is a melancholic piece of music, which fits the video’s mood nicely. In a press release, Trevor Powers stated, “My mental state is usually pretty sporadic… a lot of this record was influenced by a fear of mortality but embracing it at the same time. Realizing that human life is only great because it is temporary.”
 
The video is beautifully made with a soft haze surrounding it, making it look like an animated watercolor painting. As with Youth Lagoon’s music, the video shows no clear goal and doesn’t follow a linear path. His sophomore effort, Wondrous Bughouse, was released through Fat Possum this past March. Watch the video for Raspberry Cane (via Noisey), and check out Youth Lagoon’s fall tour dates below.
