Angel In Realtime.
Sydney Australia's Gang of Youths will release their highly anticipated forthcoming album titled 'angel in realtime.' out Feb. 25 on Warner Records. The album follows their widely acclaimed last LP 'Go Farther in Lightness' released in 2017, and contains 13 brand new songs.
Said of the new LP, "Collectively, angel in realtime charts the waves of emotions that flooded over frontman Dave Le’aupepe following the loss of his father. Overwhelmed, Le’aupepe uses songwriting as an eloquent and poignant outlet for his grief. The album’s conceptual themes are amplified by Gang of Youths’ ever more ambitious musical approach. Their influences range from American minimalism and contemporary classical, to drawing upon the legacy of Britain’s alternative/indie scenes, such as drum ‘n’ bass to the most transcendent moments of Britpop. It’s equally rooted in Le’aupepe’s Polynesian heritage, featuring samples from David Fanshawe’s recordings of indigenous music from the Polynesian islands and the wider South Pacific, as well as contributions from a cast of talented Pasifika and Māori vocalists and instrumentalists."
4 previously released album tracks can be streamed below, along with the visualizer for their epic and anthemic latest single titled "in the wake of your leave". About the new single, “'in the wake of your leave'” converts sorrow into a song that burns with life-affirming, passion – from its exuberant rush to its bright, colossal melodies and its addictive, radio-friendly hook. And in one of the band’s most striking hallmarks, it still shimmers with a remarkable attention to detail: the elegiac backing harmonies of the Auckland Gospel Choir; the percussion provided by a collective of drummers from the Cook Islands."
