Young Fathers are a Scottish experimental hip-hop outfit hailing from Edinburgh. Formed in 2008, the group consists of Aloysius Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole, and 'G' Hastings.
Originally making waves with their debut record ‘Inconceivable Child... Conceived’, Young Fathers would then hit the road to tour the UK and Europe almost constantly for three years, before putting out their debut studio album, ‘Dead’, in 2014.
In October 2017, Young Fathers announced the follow up to their latest album, 2015's 'White Men Are Black Men Too' was finished, but we are yet to know a release date. In the mean time, the trio unveiled a new song, Lord, and confirmed a batch of UK shows for spring 2018.

Young Fathers are a hard act to review because they're so wilfully and unapologetically avant-garde. It's virtually impossible to neatly categorise the Edinburgh trio or wax poetic on their lineage. To make matters worse, their albums are too frenetic and overwhelming to play on repeat without taking a lengthy recovery nap.
