Gang Of Youths gift us a stirring cover of David Bowie's Heroes

Gang Of Youths give us a brilliant rendition of Heroes in honour of the late, great Mr. Bowie.

People around the world are paying tributes to the Goblin Prince in all manner of forms, and Aussie lads Gang of Youths have done their part in honouring David Bowie by releasing a magical rendition of Heroes. The cover replaces Bowies 70s sound with a Gang of Youths signature Kansas-esque strings backing and a marching kick drum, as well as dreamy synth and guitar hooks. Front man David Le’aupepe possesses one of the most intensely honest voices you are likely to hear, just have a listen to the live rendition of Vital Signs he did for us last year. This uniquely authentic vocal soars over the whole track, something I’m sure Mr. Bowie would have been very pleased to hear.

Le’aupepe writes on the bands Facebook page, “At the risk of being trite, Heroes changed my life. The melody accompanying “I, I will be king/and you/you will be queen” is to me, not only the finest melody the Thin White Duke ever wrote but among the finest ever written period.” 

Nailed it.
