Crashing guitars, that work heavenly with the drums hi-hats before a very beauty riff is introduced is how you are greeted when you first click on Gang of Youths newest single “What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?” released Thursday this week.
What can only be reciprocated as feelings of sadness, guilt, angst and desperation makes up what is one of the most powerful love anthem that the year has seen so far.
Gang of Youths put forth the compassion within their lyrics “What can i do if the fire goes out? Cause I don’t know if I can live without.“, it is a song that mixes so many emotions. As it raises not only fear, but also hope in what could be the outcome of such a relatable situation that most people would have been through at one point in their lives.
With the love driven anthem being their follow-up single from their 2016 album ‘Let Me Be Clear’ it is very different genres, although channels similar sounds from their 2015 album ‘The Positions’. Interested to see what Gang of Youths will make of their upcoming album.
