Gang of Youths are ready for big things. Their debut album, The Positions, practically demands it. It's filled with songs which will one day, no doubt, fill stadiums. The album is dense, richly textured and sprawls through numerous realms of sound, with layers of soaring guitars, strings, glistening synths, lingering piano riffs and pockets of glitch. Pensive opener Vital Signs has a light Americana feel while a jerky new wave riff holds Poison Drum together. The rougher Restraint & Release is underpinned by a dirty guitar line offset by zapping synths and tight dance drums, a reoccurring element throughout the album.
