Young Fathers' momentum continues to grow in the wake of their Mercury prize win for debut album, DEAD. The trio blew audiences away in London this month with a "thrillingly visceral and in-your-face" performance that resulted in a glowing 5-star review from The Guardian.
Writer Ian Gittins curbs his initial reservations about the eclectic nature of their recent release in lieu of their "jaw-dropping" showmanship, concluding that "on this astounding evidence, Young Fathers deserve to win every prize going," and we couldn't agree more.
