GANG OF YOUTHS

the AU interview: Dave Le'aupepe talks new Gang of Youths music & their 5 ARIA nominations!

For Gang of Youths, this year has been full of highs off the back of their acclaimed debut record, The Positions. A solid year of live shows have seen the Sydneysiders rise up as one of the most popular touring rock bands of the year, while their recent national album tour saw multiple shows sell out incredibly quick. Today, the band scooped five ARIA Award nominations for the record, acting as a shiny, pointy cherry on the top of a pretty decent cake. Frontman Dave Le'aupepe caught up with Larry after the nominations were revealed today, not quite having processed the news yet.

Music Video of the Day: Gang of Youths "Magnolia" (2015)

Gang Of Youths have, as of last night, kicked off their huge round of Australian shows, but not before releasing the official music video for their tune "Magnolia" - easily one of the stand out tunes on their brilliant debut album, The Positions. The clip's premise is simple enough: the camera tracks David Le'aupepe as we walks down a (mostly) deserted street alone for the most part, riling himself up with the lyrics of the song, detailing loss, loneliness and recovery. The result is ultimately raw and arresting however, and makes for a great watch.
