I am glad I have found this forum and I hope it continues to grow as I have been waiting for something like this to come along for a long time now. To be able to share this band with other people who love it just as much is very exciting.
My name is Brendan from Adelaide and I first fell In love with Gang Of Youths when my girlfriend bought me The Positions for my Birthday in April 2015. Discovering this album and the emotion in Dave’s lyrics drew me to countless listens over 2015. It was an album that my girlfriend and I mutually fell for while listening together and it helped us grow closer through all the listens. We saw them live for the first time in April 2016.
By the time Let Me Be Clear came out, I had memorised The Positions word for word and I was immediately drawn to The Good Fight and Still Unbeaten Life and knew when Album #2 came out it would blow my mind.
By the time GFIL arrived it exceeded even the high expectations I had. It’s probably had over 300 listens from start to finish since it arrived and still gives me chills every time I listen. Another album I can sing word for word due to so many listens. My girlfriend and I saw them live in September 2017 and then twice on the Say Yes To Life tour last year.
I am so excited for what the future holds for this band and can’t wait for a potential Album #3 sooner rather than later. Thanks for having me here and I hope I can contribute to a great community
