Young Fathers – ‘Shame’

Directed by Jeremy Cole...

Young Fathers released their new album earlier this week, with 'White Men Are Black Men Too' aiming to follow the Mercury winning success of 'DEAD'.

Out now, album highlight 'Shame' has received the video treatment. Picking up on the twin themes of joy and brutality, director Jeremy Cole has come up with something simple yet hugely effective.

The film maker states: "At first listen, I considered 'Shame' as a strong, dance-along pop track. With every repeated listen, the track started to sound more sinister and haunting but you still wanted to dance along to it… My intent with the video was to create a piece that reflected the poignancy of the lyrics and the intensity of the music – while at the same time bringing conversation and question about perception."  

Check it out now.
