A brand new single from the Scottish experimental hip hop outfit Young Fathers. The group is getting set to drop a new full-length via Anticon on February 3rd. The title of this thing: DEAD.

"WAR" isn't one of Young Fathers' most hard-hitting tracks, but it is one of their strangest, alternating between intense stints of spoken word, and impassioned group singing. Enjoy!

Young Fathers - "LOW"

Scottish alt-hip hop trio Young Fathers have left me pretty impressed with their creative lo-fi fusions of rap, African music, reggae, and more on the two "tapes" they've dropped thus far, but I've always thought there was more potential in what the group was offering--especially if the sounds they were working with were more hi-fi. The song "LOW" seems to toy with the idea of that, featuring the best recording I've heard on a Young Fathers song yet. The singing, rapping, and primal beat ring through clearly, and give this tender ballad dynamics it needs to move emotions and groove crowds. Watch, listen, and enjoy! Oh, and the trio is already set to drop a new album in February titled DEAD, so look out for that!

Young Fathers - "Queen Is Dead"


Scottish experimental hip hop outfit Young Fathers drop some visuals for the TAPE TWO track "Queen Is Dead," and the gritty, black and white closeups that comprise this vid match the sounds presented perfectly. The urgent lyrics, blaring synths, and exited shouts of "WOO" all have an in-your-face attitude to them I love.

Also, if you watch this thing on YouTube, you get the option of observing it in 3D.
