#25. Young Fathers
Young Fathers are the pride and joy of Edinburgh, Scotland.
The lo-fi R&B trio formed in 2008 and have two albums in their discography. Their debut full-length Dead won the U.K.’s prestigious Mercury Prize back in 2014. The sophomore effort White Men Are Black Men Too was released last year to critical acclaim.
Besides lo-fi R&B, their sound could also be categorized as hip hop pop, indie pop, electronic, or, wait for it… reggae. I don’t care what it is because I dig it, reminds me a lot like TV On The Radio.
The band’s name comes from all three members having their fathers’ names. Fun fact are fun!
