Gang of Youths return with Angel in Realtime. The album is about the life and legacy of Dave's father, indigenous identity, death, grief and God. And also the Angel, Islington.
Despite and indeed because of frontman Dave Le’aupepe’s father’s absence, his influence permeates every talking point that the album offers. At times it’s solely focused upon the precise, personal experiences of loss: the dichotomy of intensity and peace that comes as someone passes through their final days; the overwhelming feeling in the wake of their death that life will never be the same, even if the rest of the world at large remains utterly unchanged.
