The Eyelet #16 YOUNG FATHERS



We’d heard their current tune wafting out of passing cars,  caught the tail end on the radio etc…. Then someone sent us a recording and we fell in love with the discordant tune that is GET UP.

From the UK via Liberia, Nigeria and Scotland, Young Fathers have pursued a unique trajectory, from mid-teen hip hop trio via psych-pop rap to where they are now, on their own original island thrown up by a pop volcano, tectonic plates of genres rubbing up against each other like under-sea dirty party-people; seams of molten pop history spewing lava more fertile than guano, upon which the rich foliage of hook, rhythm and bass grow immodestly in the sun.

Couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Unfortunately we couldn’t make their recent show @ East Village Arts Club…gutted… They are currently touring Europe and America.
