Young Fathers – “In My View” Video

Edinburgh art-rap trio Young Fathers released the speaker-rattling gospel ballad “LORD” back in October, along with a vague announcement of their new album. Today, they give us more details, another track, and a striking video. The LP will be called Cocoa Sugar and follows 2014’s Mercury Prize-winning DEAD and 2015’s genre-blending White Men Are Black Men Too. Its latest single, “In My View,” is engrossing, yet danceable — it stops you in your tracks but makes you want to move. A soulful restlessness echoes from the textured synth to their longing voices. The Jack Whiteley-directed video uses a similar fist-clenching energy, featuring a cowboy’s passionate dance moves, a tense dinner party, and a mother grasping her child’s head. Watch and listen below.
