Young Fathers on Thursday 22nd March 2018
Young Fathers are a group consisting of ‘G’ Hastings, from Edinburgh, Alloysious Massaquoi, originally from Liberia via Ghana and Kayus Bankole, born in Edinburgh to Nigerian parents but partially raised in Maryland USA. Their live shows are complimented by Steven Morrison on drums.
Following support from the BBC’s Zane Lowe and Lauren Laverne, and an appearance on influential USA talk show, Jimmy Kimmel in 2014, TAPE TWO won Scottish Album Of The Year (‘The SAY Award’), while their next album, DEAD, received the highly prestigious Mercury Prize for best album of 2014.
Immediately after winning the Mercury Prize, Young Fathers travelled to Berlin where they continued making a new album in a freezing basement in a building near the railway yards. Returning to the more familiar (and warmer) basement studio in Edinburgh to finish their next album, White Men Are Black Men Too, released in April 2015 to widespread acclaim.
In 2016, the band were invited to support Massive Attack on their UK and European tour after working together on Massive Attack’s single “Voodoo In My Blood”, which was released in January 2016.
Young Fathers feature on 6 tracks on the Trainspotting T2 soundtrack, including “Only God Knows”, written specifically for the film.
