The holiness of love, the chaos and rapture of surviving against all odds. This is what drives Sydney five-piece Gang Of Youths, whose New single “The Heart Is A Muscle” we’re honored to deliver as first taste off the forthcoming “Go Father In Lightness” (out 3/16).
Sydney’s Gang Of Youths founded in the confines of their religious youth, enchanted by the spectacle of worship and deliverance, it’s no wonder their music burns with the desperation of apocalypse. With singer Dave Le’aupepe’s lyrics drawn from some of the most miserable life experiences available to humanity, and the band’s music taking cues from rock history’s most ambitious and theatrical preachers, Gang Of Youths drag the beauty out of everything from hell to high heaven.
