mp3: Young Fathers – Low

I’ve known for a while that Young Fathers were from Scotland, but I didn’t think I would ever really hear it in their music.  Young Fathers have always incorporated musical ideas from all over the world into their music, but this track immediately recalls their home country as soon as it begins with an arpeggiating synth over a drone note that sounds like a futuristic bagpipe.  As usual, Young Fathers complement this awesome instrumental with some incredible vocals, alternating between singing and chant-like rapping, this time with a political message at the forefront of their lyrics, which perfectly ties in with the patriotic instrumental.  This track comes from their upcoming album set to release in early February on Anticon.
