'Go Farther In Lightness' is the second full length album from Gang Of
Youths, and the follow up to debut album 'The Positions' and the EP 'Let
Me Be Clear'.

"Go Farther In Lightness is my healing record. It's my answer to the
question: “what do I say now, after writing the hour-long record about
cancer?”.

I suppose it's my attempt of making sense of the world thereafter, and to

being, with all our self-loathing, hopes, anxieties, sorrows and joys. It is
about not knowing what the f*** I'm doing, but having a good ol' stab at it
anyways. It is about demonstrating empathy, overthinking metaphysics and, at the
risk of seeming overly trite, embracing humanness in myself and those around me
in the here and now. No, I don't believe that we are “cool”, nor do we
clothe ourselves in ornaments of what is currently in vogue re: indie rock in
2017. We are not predominantly white, middle-class progressives producing music
self-aware and effete — nor are we making a new fetishised brand of garage
punk that inexplicably makes a soft return every 15 years. We're something of
an in-between, I think. Not cool, but not totally garish and awkward,
attempting to make music about and for the forgotten people whom, like us, have
always had trouble finding a place. And no, I don't believe guitar music will
