Young Fathers Debut Video For “Rice”
Young Fathers have shared new single “Rice,” the final single of their forthcoming album Heavy Heavy, due out on February 3rd via Ninja Tune. The track is the Follow-up from last year’s “Geronimo.”
“Tell Somebody” and “I Saw” – “Rice” reverberates with victorious defiance. With its gospel-style chants and the delicate percussive sound of wooden sticks and hand-claps, “Rice” proves another example of how Young Fathers so skillfully side-step any kind of musical boundary. To accompany the release, the trio continue their creative collaboration with 23 year old Austrian-Nigerian artist and filmmaker David Uzochukwu – allowing him to compliment the song with a visual that perfectly demonstrates the scale and expansive feel of the music.
Since the release of their two now-legendary mixtapes, ‘Tape One’ in 2011 and ‘Tape Two’ in 2013, the latter of which also won Scottish Album of the Year, Young Fathers have received non-stop acclaim from both fans and artists alike – receiving cosigns from the likes of David Byrne, Florence Welch, GoldLink, Sam Fender, Janelle Monae, Self Esteem and Danny Boyle who used 7 of their tracks in a unique composition for his sequel to Trainspotting.
n recent years, the band have performed multiple headline shows, including two sold-out shows in both New York and San Francisco, and toured with long-time collaborators Massive Attack, Florence + The Machine, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more.
