GANG OF YOUTHS

(SONY)

Herald Sun - Hit - - MUSIC -

Gang of Youths al­ways com­mit. Their Mel­bourne un­plugged con­cert is a mas­ter­piece. Strings twist and dance where gui­tars once did on Let Me Down Easy, Fear and Trem­bling trades grunt for spine-tin­gling emo­tion, The Heart is a Mus­cle a stun­ning ren­dezvous of rock band, orches­tra and David Le’au­pepe’s voice and truth. Per­se­vere, about the death of a friend’s baby, is in­ti­mate and pow­er­ful. Not a stop gap, but rather a turn­ing point. /CA note­wor­thy TRY THIS IF YOU LIKE … Bruce Spring­steen
