By now it’s safe to say that the whole world is asking, “WTF?” when it comes to current American politics. Aussie rockers, Gang of Youths, are one of them and they are making their own statement with their single “Atlas Drowned.” Capturing the heftiness of today’s political climate, “Atlas Drowned” is a grand-sized smasher where you vicariously breathe out the anger and tension with frontman David Le’aupepe. The song feels like the flight-or-fight response to what’s happening – and flight is not an option unless you want the shit to hit the fan:

The track was written by the frontman in response to US politics. The Aussie rockers have already snatched five Aria Award nominations, piled up 10,000,000 Spotify streams, and hit #5 in Australian album charts (ARIA charts) with their debut record.
