About Young Fathers

Young Fathers are a Scottish trio that formed in 2008, comprising Alloysious Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole, and Graham “G” Hastings. They produce music across the genres of experimental hip hop, alternative R&B, and indietronica. The group incorporates pop, gospel, dancehall, and other international musical influences, and themes concerning love, family, political corruption, and war.

The group first met and performed as teenagers in Edinburgh, where they are still based. Their name comes from the fact that each member is named after their father.

After splitting from an unsuccessful deal with a local record label as a pop-oriented rap group, they reinvented themselves by independently releasing the dark, lo-fi Tape One in 2011. This gained them some positive critical attention and a label signing with Anticon, who reissued the EP in 2013. In the same year, they followed with Tape Two, which won the Scottish Album of the Year Award.

In 2014, they released their Mercury Prize-winning debut album Dead, followed by White Men Are Black Men Too in 2015. After collaborating with Massive Attack on “Voodoo in My Blood” in 2016 and writing “Only God Knows” for the 2017 film T2 Trainspotting, they released their third album Cocoa Sugar in 2018.
