Sydney’s very own Gang of Youths have just dropped a very intriguing video for their latest single Benevolence Riots. With a toned down, indie rock flavour the video combines smoking mothers, flash backs and amusing subtitles – my favourite being ‘Canada was built on dead beavers’. Why exactly is it there? Beats me.
Regardless, it’s another great track from a band who so early on in their career have supported the likes of Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend and Foster the People. As well as the new video, they’ve also announced a string of tour dates across the East Coast as the momentum grows for their album release this year. Although part of just one of many emerging artists in Australia, their live show has already garnered a searing hot reputation as a ferocious experience around the Sydney live music scene. The tour begins later this month in Brisbane before hitting up Melbourne and Sydney.
