Young Fathers first caught our attention some time ago.
Initially, it was their live show, their astonishing energy which impressed. Yet as the Edinburgh trio have progressed, their studio work, their invention and willingness to tackle new ideas has come to the fore.
Working with Big Dada, new album 'DEAD' will be released on February 4th. The band's most concise, impressive statement yet, Young Fathers will preview the album with new cut 'GET UP'.
Rooted in chopped up 70s funk samples, the three-piece throw in plenty of nasty electronics for a 21st century twist. With each MC taking it in turn to approach the mic, this is the perfect entry point for anyone new to the Young Fathers party.
'GET UP' will be released on January 27th - check it out below.
