VIDEO: YOUNG FATHERS – GET UP
Gearing up to release their debut LP Dead later this week, Scottish hip-hop trio Young Fathers have given us a first taste with the video release of Get Up.
Generally I’m not a fan of musicians telling me I need to “join the party” but after a couple of listens I get the sense that these guys are a little bit different. If the video is anything go by, what you’re listening to is not the soundtrack to a party but more an underground uprising. It’s a gritty bass line with undeniably intelligent rap and a rapturous chorus blasted over the top. It’s Young Fathers and you should expect them on an iPod or festival stage near you very soon.
