Project Description


Gang of Youths’s sophomore album Go Farther In Lightness made waves in Australia, the band’s home country. It debuted at number 1 on the ARIA charts in August of 2017, and ultimately won the ARIA Album Of The Year later that year. The 16 tracks explore universal love, faith, friendship and more.

The lyrics are raw, and can be explicit, but this makes them feel real. The whole record is hopeful, in the most human way possible. The band combines traditional rock guitar and drums with classical-sounding strings that both transition between every track and persist throughout the entire album.

Tracks to Try: the brutally honest “Keep Me In the Open”, the epic “Do Not Let Your Spirit Wane”, the orchestral “Achilles Come Down”, and the heart-wrenching “Persevere.”

Check out a personal favorite, “The Deepest of Sights, The Frankest of Shadows” below:
