Older Interviews


#1

Back in 2016 Dave was a guest on FBi Radio’s “Out of the Box” segment in Australia (similar concept to BBC’s Desert Island Discs).

It’s interesting to hear him discuss a number of the ideas that would go on to inform ‘Go Farther In Lightness’ - particularly his affection for Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road’ which is evident in ‘Fear and Trembling’.

It’s a great listen for everyone eager to find out more about Dave and how that informs the music of Gang of Youths.

This is great, @RobC - thx so much for sharing. Speaking as someone who’s only discovered the band this year, I’d love to learn about any other older interviews/articles/etc. that would help us catch up on what I’ve missed – and I’m sure others would, too. I’ve found a fair amount of stuff on YouTube and managed to find the Rolling Stone (AU) cover story on Archive.org, but I’m sure there must be so much more.

Welcome to the site and the forum, too - thanks for joining us. :grin:

Also, here’s an interview with Dave published the day before Let Me Be Clear was released in July 2016. It’s also the first time he publicly announces the title of the sophomore album:
