Young Fathers have posted new single 'War' online - check it out now.
Young Fathers are newcomers but not new. Across a series of mixtapes - notably this year's fantastic 'Tape Two' offering - the Edinburgh based group have spelled out a unique, deeply personal aesthetic.
Working with Anticon and Big Dada, the band are now ready to release their debut album proper. 'Dead' drops on February 4th, but ahead of this Young Fathers have prepped a new single.
'War' lingers on a sparse beat, with Young Fathers sacrificing the Golden Age funk of their early era for an increasingly hostile, barbed electronic template.
The lyrics are uncompromising, with the group intoning: "Forgive them Lord you lost your child".
Listen to it now.
'Dead' is set to be released on February 4th.
