Youth Lagoon (a.k.a. Trevor Powers) has offered up a video for “Highway Patrol Stun Gun.” Below, you can watch the clip, which features Powers and a masked cohort getting fancy drinks, dancing like no one is watching, and attempting to high five passers-by. The track, along with previously-shared single “The Knower,” will be featured on Savage Hills Ballroom, which is set for a September 25 release via Fat Possum.

Speaking to The Fader, Powers also provided some context for “Highway Patrol Stun Gun”:

“With all the police brutality in the media, it seemed like every single day there was some element of chaos-but in different forms. It just got so bad. I feel like we live in this shitstorm now where there’s so many corrupt people in high places, people getting away with all this shit. So, I sat down and I decided to just write whatever came to my mind. Living in Idaho, it’s easy to feel isolated from all of these events, and that was sort of my way of dealing with it. There’s also elements of loss tied to [the song] as well. I lost one of my closest friends a couple years back, and that bled into everything. It was all these ideas put into a blender.”
