Gang of Youths is a band out of Sydney, Australia that gives the world a desparately needed anthemic call to action with their record Go Farther In Lightness. Right off the bat, the influence of New Jersey is present. Spingsteen, Gaslight Anthem and River City Extension all come to mind throughout. There is dramatic keys, thundering drums and the low comforting voice of lead singer David Le'aupepe. Standout tracks are opener "Fear and Trembling" and "The Deepest Sighs, the Frankest Shadows". The title track is 90 seconds long and I've already started planning a tattoo of the refrain after a couple listens. This record brings that sort of reaction from the listener. Can't recommend enough.
