I’ve long-championed Young Fathers on this blog, first writing about the Edinburgh Hi-Hop trio back in 2010, and being utterly delighted to see them win music awards and have two hit albums.
Their profile is set to rise even higher with their presence on the soundtrack to the jaw-droppingly brilliant T2: Trainspotting. Along with pretty much everyone in Edinburgh I went to see it this weekend, and twas brillig, as Lewis Carroll might have said. Young Fathers have several tracks on the soundtrack, including the fabulous ‘Only God Knows’ which plays over the end credits. It’s credited as featuring the Leith Congregational Choir.
So turn it up, and give your neighbours a treat. And if you haven’t seen them live yet…tusk, tusk.
