Gang Of Youths on ‘The Angel Of 8th Ave.’: “It’s a reflection of love in a new city”

Gang Of Youths talk their return with 'The Angel Of 8th Ave.'

Gang Of Youths have returned with their first new music in four years. Check out new single ‘Angel Of 8th Ave.’ below and our video interview with the band above.

‘Angel Of 8th Ave.’ is the Australian band’s first taster of their upcoming third album, which was recorded and self-produced at their home studio in Hackney where they’ve been working since leaving Sydney for London back in 2017 to escape the fame they experienced as a chart-topping, multi-ARIA-winning band in their homeland.

“It’s about falling in love and finding a place in a new city with that person,” frontman Dave Le’aupepe told NME. “It’s my story, but we wanted it to feel like a more broad spectrum of love and the two major cities that played a big part in mine and my wife’s life.

“There’s always going to be poetry with love in the big city, and the metropolis is like a microcosm for a global human experience no matter where.”
