Young Fathers - "In My View"

New MusictheneedledropComment

Young Fathers have just announced the release of their third album, Cocoa Sugar, through Ninja Tune later this year. Yes, the Edinburgh trio is back, and I'm just stunned thinking about the artistic progression the trio has undergone to get to the point they're at with this new track, "In My View." It was only five years ago when I was praising Tape One and Two, a pair of creative lo-fi hip hop EPs with splashes of soul and West African music thrown in..

Two albums later, there's no mistaking a Young Fathers song – the chilling synthesizers, foreign rhythms, soaring vocals, and abstract rap verses all add up into an experience that's both fiery and contemplative. Check out the new music video for "In My View" above, and look for their new record on March 9.
