Gang Of Youths Release Surprise New EP ‘total serene’

The release of Gang Of Youths’ recent single “the angel of 8th ave.” felt like the launch of an entirely new band rather than a mere resurrection. Boasting a new sound of cinematic scale and packing a pure emotional punch, the track was praised by Brooklyn Vegan as “instantly satisfying,” while Stereogum raved that it “hits that sweet spot between arena rock and big-tent indie, evoking such touchstones as U2, the War On Drugs and The National in its pursuit of sweeping grandeur.”

On the heels of announcing a U.K. tour, the band continues its forward momentum with today’s surprise release of the new EP total serene. Gang Of Youths’ first body of work since its four-time ARIA Award-winning second album Go Farther In Lightness, the EP is led by the new single “unison.”
