Gang of Youths, Sound Control, Manchester - 25th May 2017

Sound Control is an intimate venue and was a great fit for the occasion. Playing to a small crowd, some bands of Gang of Youths talent would feel disappointed and discouraged, but this was not the case as Dave and the boys gave it their all.

In light of recent events Dave opened with a solo rendition of Champagne Supernova to pay respect. The band joined in after to deliver a blistering start to the show with their new single 'What Can I Do if the Fire Goes Out?' The rest of the show was a balanced mix between favourites from The Positions, and unleashing their new material coming in their next release. Can't wait to get my hands on their new LP based on what I heard.

In between songs Dave would reveal intimate details of the songs, with Jung playing keys sounding very similar to the chords of The Diving Bell. Dave has already established himself as a stellar performer with his relentless energy, dancing that men could only dream of doing, while never missing a note. But in this event he proved that he is also a captivating storyteller while onstage. Although this is no surprise considering if you've listened to him being interviewed.

The set was the perfect transition between leaving behind the tragedy and adversity of The Positions and coming into a new era of what I'd like to call hope with Go Farther in Lightness. Dave mid-set revealed yet another tragedy, and delivered a solo rendition of Knuckles White Dry which in his own words, now has new meaning to him.

While the crowd was up to this point happy to stand and listen, gazing in awe at what they were witnessing, couples embraced each other in arms as Dave delivered advice on not taking things for granted. The crowds excitement peaked with Magnolia as expected, with Dave coming into the crowd. A personal highlight for me would be watching him make his way through the crowd putting his arms around members of the audience and eventually making his way to me.

The show was a flurry of emotions best captured by their performance of Poison Drum where the words "I'm not afraid" repeated over and over could be heard from the crowd back at the band, with the words taking on so many different meanings given recent events.

Having very high hopes for the show going in, I am relieved to say that the performance exceeded such high expectations and is among one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.

Gang of Youths, Chalk, Brighton - 13th May 2018

I’ve gotta say, despite Dave saying in the show we shouldn’t be looking to him for the answers, GOY have been there for me through some pretty pivotal moments in my life. The boys did not disappoint and Dave’s performance was insightful, bloody hot and a whole lot of fun. See you again soon 💘

Gang Of Youths frontman David Le'aupepe isn’t like other singers. Acharismatic man apart,a creative livewire who’s a deep thinker at the same time as being an incessant talker, a militant look-forwarderwho has no intention of resting on any of thesuccess his band have achieved over the past decade. Take this answer to a question about his group’s back catalogue, for instance. “I don’t want to hear the last two albums,” he says. “I want to wake up in a world where they didn’t happen.” But they did happen, so let’s have a quick recap: Gang Of Youths were formed in Sydney, Australia in 2011 by Le'aupepe and some like-mindedmates. Within months of their first gig, they’d started to attract a rabid fanbase enraptured bytheirexpansive, widescreen take on indie-rock, the sort of black magic music that managesto feeluniversal and personal at the same time. They honed this sound over two records,on2015’s The Positions and 2017’s Go Farther In Lightness, and wonfourof Australia’sprestigious ARIA Awards on the back of their Platinum-selling second album. Word spread further afieldtoo, helped by an extensive support tour in the US and Europe supportingMumford & Sons. They relocated to London towards the end of 2017, all living in a house together in Angel, North London. Their current line-up is completed by Max Dunn (bass), Jung Kim (guitar, keyboards), Donnie Borzestowski (drums) and Tom Hobden (keyboards, guitar, violin).
