GANG OF YOUTHS Drop Another Piece From New Upcoming Album – Hear Intense Ballad ‘SPIRIT BOY’ Here

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

New album: ANGEL IN REALTIME
Release: 25 February 2022 – order info here

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.

New Albums 2022 – ‘ANGEL IN REALTIME’ By Avid Aussie Rockers GANG OF YOUTHS

26 January 2022

Band: GANG OF YOUTHS
Who: Indie star rockers from Sydney, AUS
Active: Since 2011 / 3rd LP coming up

New album: ANGEL IN REALTIME
Release: 25 February 2022 – order info here

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 – it’s equally rooted in Le’aupepe’s Samoan heritage, with the majority of tracks featuring samples from David Fanshawe’s recordings of indigenous music from the Polynesian islands and the wider South Pacific. ‘angel in realtime’ also features contributions from a cast of talented Pasifika and Māori vocalists and instrumentalists.” (Rough Trade)

Five Firecrackers To STAY ON TRACK IN THE WEEKEND!

18 June 2021

5 New Firecrackers To Boost Your Weekend!

‘Lumberjack’ by TYLER, THE CREATOR (California)
Almost 2 million views on YT in just two day. Wow! Our star rapper has a gigantic
and fanatic fan base. His new album Call Me If You Get Lost out next week.

Let’s hop…

‘I Just Can’t Keep Myself From Loving You’ by THE INSTITUTES (Coventry, UK)
These young dogs nail it with a flaming Britpop guitar cracker driven by a fervent flair, melodious magnetism and an anthemic sing-along chorus. They’re definitely mad for it.

Get rollin’ here…


.
‘Four Years Later’ by NOTHING SPECIAL (Toronto, Canada)
Seems like fab arena punks Green Day have written a roaring ripper for these Toronto rockers. Full steam ahead from start to finish. Screeching guitars, overwhelming rhythm, and a scream along chorus. Bingo!

.
‘The Angel Of 8th Ave.’ by GANG OF YOUTHS (Australia)
The Australian heroes are back with a massive belter to play out loud on your car
stereo, hair in the wind, pumping a fist in the air when the catchy chorus pops up.

Here we go…

‘Call Me Back’ by THE HIGH LOVES (Toronto, Canada)
This smells like summer spirit. Jingle jangle delirium and pop ravishment. But… call your lover back to fully enjoy – together – this sickly sticky earworm. Right here, right now…


.
See/hear you next week music junkies…
