Big things poppin’ for the good lads Gang of Youths at the moment, and while they’ve already got the hearts of us here in Australia, last night they took things to the next step with a choice slot on US late night TV.
The Sydney group, currently in the middle of a seriously very large run of dates throughout the blessed United States, made their American television debut last night on Late Night with Seth Meyers, dropping by the hallowed Studio 8-G at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City to lay down a tasty lick from their newest LP, Go Farther in Lightness.
On an episode that also featured Connie Britton and Rose Leslie, the Gang of Youths boys laid down a raucous rendition of their tune What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out, before a rapturous live crowd at the studio and an audience of millions watching across the US and abroad.
In terms of late night debut performances, you can’t really ask for much more. It slaps, folks.
The band’s current US tour is taking them through the north-east of the country, including a sold out show at New York’s legendary Bowery Ballroom on March 25th.
Following that they’ll take on the UK in early May, before visiting the US west coast for a string of shows ahead of planned appearances across the Northern Hemisphere summer festival circuit.
