New striking strokes
23 February 2022
Band: GANG OF YOUTHS
Who: Indie star rockers from Sydney, AUS led
by singer/songwriter/guitarist David Le’aupepe
Active: Since 2011 / 3rd LP coming up
Info: “The album is about the life and legacy of Dave’s father, indigenous identity, death,
grief and God. And also the Angel, Islington. Although the album is eclectic – influences range from American minimalism and contemporary classical, to drawing upon the legacy of Britain’s alternative/indie scenes, from drum ‘n’ bass to the most transcendent moments of Britpop .” (Rough Trade)
New track: SPIRIT BOY
4th track from the forthcoming album
I thought at first it was a Bright Eyes song as frontman David Le’aupepe’s voice
resembles Conor Oberst‘s one wondrously well here. Also, Spirit Boy has that same
emotive intensity as Bright Eyes ballads. Mesmeric magnificence in motion.
A heartwhole humdinger.
