Gang of Youths – What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?
Gang of Youths are an indie/alternative rock band from Sydney, Australia. In 2015, they released their debut album, ‘The Positions‘, which they followed with 2016 EP ‘Let Me Be Clear‘. However, their most notable work comes in the form of their ARIA-sweeping 2017 album: ‘Go Farther in Lightness‘.
Today’s Song of the Day is the first single from their latest album: ‘What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?’.
Struggle appears to be the main theme of this track, particularly with faith. Fast-paced drums keep the song in permanent momentum as tremolo picking provides a powerful melody where the vocals are absent. Covered with lovely middle-range vocal melodies, ‘What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?‘ is a song that just makes you want to dance, while provoking you to question your own struggles.
