Gang Of Youths – Forbearance

After the success of their 2017 albumΒ Go Farther In Lightness, Sydney band Gang Of Youths relocated to London. They just put out their biggest statement yet,Β their new long-player Angel In Realtime. Essentially a concept album, it explores the death of front man David Le’aupepe’s father in 2018, and the grief, guilt and acceptance surrounding it.

The record takes the five-piece’s already present ambition to a next level. Some may find the band’s stadium-sized pop/rock bombastic. Personally, I’d rather describe it with words like anthemic, epic and cinematic, thanks to the inclusion of strings, urgent drums and layers of guitar.

My favourite album track Forbearance is a good example. It has the atmosphere of U2’s With Or Without You, but with drum and bass like drum patterns.
