The continued rise of Young Fathers


I’ve featured Edinburgh’s Young Fathers on 17 Seconds before. Now it seems that the band’s profile is set to rise even higher with the news that they have signed to Anticon, the home of Why? and Doseone, amongst others.

Kayus Bankole, Graham Hastings, and Alloysious Massaquoi have been making music together since they were fourteen. Though they share a hometown with Stanley Odd, their music and overall sound is way different. Comparisons have been made with the Daisy AGe rappers as much as post-rockers. Previous singles include ‘Straight Back On It,’ ‘Fever’s Worse’ and ‘Automatic.’

Last year’s Tape One EP will be re-released as the band’s first release on Anticon. This track is taken from that EP…enjoy.
