Trevor Sensor is a 23-year-old singer songwriter from the small town of Sterling , Illnois and has just unveiled details of his debut album and video to single ‘High Beams’.

You can watch the video in this article. 

Sensor has been increasing our admiration for him with a consistent string of great songs – especially ‘When Tammy Spoke To Martha’ and ‘The Money Gets Bigger’.

‘High Beams’ joins the latter cut as the second of two tracks to be unveiled from the songwriters forthcoming debut album, Andy Warhol’s Dream, out via respected indie label Jagjaguwar (Angel Olsen, Foxygen).

Label mate Jonathan Rado who also produces The Lemon Twigs has been on hand to produce the album in addition to Richard Swift (The Shins, Damien Jurado) and Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, The Envy Corps). The record was recorded at Steve Albini’s Electric Audio studio in Chicago.

‘High Beams’ lyrics tap into the most intense feelings of hopelessness, loneliness, and inferiority. He’s cinematic in his delivery conjuring a thousand images with every line. The video, suitably, is shot in a post industrial wasteland.

Sensor has this beautiful explanation of it:

“The song derives from the desire to be one of those people on the television – a desire instilled in us since childhood in America and the western world at large. A desire that consumes us, especially those few born in middle America who look for supposedly greater things beyond the horizon of cornfields and prairies, or the northern factory towns of England – those places where nobody of any pop cultural significance is suppose to come from – for there is only so much room in the camera lens, the television screen, and we must save it for the pretty, plastic people,” Sensor explains. “It revolves around things lost, things hoped for and the dreams we tell ourselves to keep us from the possibly horrifying conclusions that forever creep up on us in the back of our minds. To these conclusions and this desire, I curl back my feelers and hiss – for I am twenty-three and tired.”

Trevor plays St Pancras Church, London, United Kingdom on Thursday 4 May 2017.
