Gang of Youths background
Gang of Youths was formed in Sydney in 2012 when the band members were fresh out of high school. The band consists of lead singer and songwriter Dave Le'aupepe, lead guitarist Joji Malani, guitarist/keyboardist Jung Kim, bassist Max Dunn and drummer Donnie Borzestowski. To claim that the band has a multi-cultural background would be an understatement. Le'aupepe has Samoan-Jewish heritage, Malani is Fijian, Jung Kim is Korean-American, Dunn is from New Zealand and Borzestowski is Polish-Australian! Gang of Youths music is heavily motivated by personal experiences. The debut Gang of Youths album The Positions (2012), deals with Le'aupepe's ex-wife's battle with cancer as well as his own troubles with depression, substance abuse and even suicide attempts. What comes out is a raw and emotional album that resonates with many listeners. The new Gang of Youths album Go Farther in Lightness (2017), reached number one on the Australian Album Chart and was widely-praised by critics across Australia and the rest of the world. With tracks like "Let Me Down Easy", "The Deepest Sighs, the Frankest Shadows" and "What Can I Do If the Fire Goes Out", the record carries on where The Positions left off; bearing the band's painful scars, yet also seeking to draw new lessons on how to overcome problems.
