Shot Notes

This is Gang of Youths stealing the show on the Crossroads stage at Bluesfest 2023, in Byron Bay, Australia. The energy from frontman and songwriter David Le’aupepe was unmatched. His command of the stage was balanced by a self-deprecating nature and wit which connected him to the audience. He was sporting a big beard, so try to imagine a mix of Jason Momoa and Costa Georgiadis with the moves of Jarvis Cocker. The latter may be no accident as their Brit-pop influences can be heard in the synth sounds and driving rhythms which work so well in a music festival atmosphere. If you ever wondered what Indie Brit-pop evolved into, Gang of Youths has the best answer to that question.

3 more days of music, The sun is out and tickets are available via the Bluesfest Website.
