Gang Of Youths quite simply soars on the Australian band’s glorious new single, “What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?”. The song’s florid canvas opens with a stringy baroque urgency reminiscent of Arcade Fire’s early offerings before it dives into a deep pool of The National meets Cold War Kids vehement moodiness. Needless to say, I find myself very excited for a follow up album to 2015′s debut The Positions. Their ravishing new single will be out this Friday, February 10th, via their own label Mosey Recordings. They promise some exciting news to come regarding their forthcoming second album.

All the stringy orchestral lushness and sweeping beauty of Strange Diseases emits a very Devotchka and Arcade Fire sort of vibe, something I’m not complaining about considering my love of both those bands. Strange Diseases is the latest from Australian band Gang Of Youths, their very first song of the year after last year’s successful debut album, The Positions. Gang Of Youths will be releasing a new EP on August 19th titled Let Me Be Clear, and I can’t be more eager for it after hearing this lustrous alt rock gem. The epic anthem comes along with a glorious video made up of scopic lo-fi footage seemingly mundane and random yet so captivating and powerful.

Gang Of Youths dropped a video for their spectacular tune Benevolence Riots, and I simply cannot resist sharing the tune again with the new tidbit. The Australian band’s song has a sultry indie rock sound not unlike the simmering rock of Artic Monkeys, paired with some of The Strokes’ sound and some Matt Berninger moody baritone. It’s such a fantastic track. Watch the new video accompaniment below! Gang Of Youths recently re-located to the US to work on their debut album, which will be released sometime in 2015.

Australia’s Gang Of Youths evoke The Strokes with a splash of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and The National’s Matt Berninger, thanks to baritone vocals, on brooding new single Benevolence Riots. I was perusing their Facebook profile yesterday, and I saw them putting down the San Francisco Giants, in favor of the KC Royals. But I forgive them, completely, because they give us some superb music. For another one of their few great tunes out and about, check out the more cheerful and buoyant Poison Drum, below.
