Whatever your weekend plans were, they just got a little better, because Gang of Youths has released a surprise EP called Total Serene.
The new, three-song project arrived Thursday, and it includes their recent single "the angel of 8th ave." It comes as they have just announced a new U.K. tour.
The EP is anchored by new song "unison," which frontman David Le’aupepe says is a "deeply important track for us that really signals where the music is headed on the new record. I conceived the song in Samoa, my ancestral homeland. Here we sample and introduce the work of David Fanshawe, who travelled to the Pacific Islands in the 1980s and recorded the most extensive library of indigenous Pacific music anywhere in the world.”
