Where have Young Fathers been our whole lives? This track, “I Saw,” is from their 4th album, Heavy Heavy, which comes out in February, 2023.
This trio are a Scottish band, based in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2014, they won the Mercury Prize for their album “Dead.” The name ‘Young Fathers’ references that they are all named after their fathers as well as their mature, serious demeanor. They say the song is “That pamphlet through your door blaming the establishment and immigrants for everything going wrong. The stench of long-dead empire, trudging along, a psychological hammer to your head in every step. The delusion.”
