Gang of Youths return with a cracking new single, Strange Diseases

It's a massive tuna.

Funnily enough despite Strange Diseases being touted as Gang of Youths brash, new single it's actually one of the first songs David Le'aupepe, lead singer of Gang of Youths, ever wrote and when talking to us said he actually felt embarrassed listening to it. And for those keen beans out there you'll notice this was also a demo on the deluxe version of The Positions. Continuing on this conversation about the past, Strange Diseases slots into a similar sound to another early Gang of Youths track called Evangelists with its big brash chorus, oooo's and smashing drums. Unlike the Gang of Youths we all know well it's rather short, only coming in at meagre 3:20 but despite its short length it's not short on feels. Indeed, it covers the same period of life that The Positions did, looking at the relationship Le'aupepe had with his wife while she dying from cancer. 

Strange Diseases is from Gang of Youths upcoming EP, Let Me Be Clear, it's expected to be released August 19 and you can check out the full tracklist below:
