Young Fathers are a band based in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2014, they won the Mercury Prize for their album Dead. Formed in Edinburgh in 2008 by Alloysious Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole and Graham 'G' Hastings, the group started performing in nightclubs when the band members were all in their teens. In 2012, they signed to LA-based label Anticon and released their introductory mixtapes, Tape One and Tape Two, with Tape Two winning the Scottish Album of the Year Award ("The SAY Award").

Immediately after winning the Mercury Prize, Young Fathers travelled to Berlin where they continued making a new album in a freezing basement in a building near the railway yards. Returning to the more familiar (and warmer) basement studio in Edinburgh to finish their latest album, White Men Are Black Men Too, which was released in April 2015 to widespread acclaim

The new album is full of impressionistic, ambiguous lyrics, mixing biblical allusions, non sequiturs and ancient proverbs: Philosophic polyfilla, Deserted in the desert, Turning sand into a mirror ; If wishes were horses, Then beggars would ride. It is important that the music remains open for listeners to interpret, explains Bankole: With Basquiat, and with some of the songs that we make, there’s a question mark. When I try to get a question in about Trainspotting, they look slightly weary, as if they’ve been asked about it ad nauseam over the past year. Do you really have to?, asks Massaquoi. Young Fathers’ album Cocoa Sugar is released on Ninja Tune on 9 March. They play five UK dates next month starting in Birmingham on 20 March.

Ahead of the release of their next album, DEAD, ottish trio Young Fathers drop meteoric new track, GET UP. Hitting you square on with dissonant foghorn blasts, giant beats and spits of I’m the catalyst for the revolution, GET UP knows no bounds in its impact. The trio almost refuse to be pigeonholed – yes, on the rap sections there are clear parallels with Massive Attack – but there’s something much more alternative here with smatterings of afrobeat and upfront pop.
