Gang of Youths at Festival Hall in Melbourne on Monday, January 6, 2014

GOY opens for Vampire Weekend.



Comments: Writing for The AU Review, Gemma Bastiani says this about GOY’s performance:

The lead vocals are stunning – especially when attacking higher notes, and each of the members seem genuinely thrilled when another hit something well (even going so far as to applaud one-another quickly on stage in an endearing fashion). The group further set themselves apart by having one guitarist play largely with a bow and encouraging that atmospheric feel to their set. It is no wonder these guys are hitting up SXSW and they, no doubt, have a team of new fans from this show.

Here’s some of what Luke Sutton had to say in The 59th Sound:

Opening act Gang of Youths started the night’s proceedings with their jams, winning fans all over the venue with a confident performance worthy of recognition. Kicking off their 2014 in such fine form, I can’t wait to see what else they get up to this year!
