EDITORS’ NOTES

The Edinburgh trio continues its explorative, pastiche approach, using R&B, hip-hop, dub, gospel, post-punk, and spontaneity as tools. Feeling, not riffs or grooves, is their North Star on “Turn” and “Fee Fi.” They invoke biblical themes on “Holy Ghost” and “Lord,” one pristine and glistening, the other raw oratory, both uplifting. “In My View” comes with a rare hook. Are Young Fathers embracing more traditional methods? Possibly, but Cocoa Sugar is a staggeringly creative listen, soaked with ingenuity and catharsis.

Former music reviewer

This album is very lo-fi, and this genre is various, from the rapping on ‘Toy’ to the hard-hitting plucks on a Cocoa Sugar, from my perspective, this album is very influential, and this needs its own kind of genre. This is actually a good album and full of originality, but it lacks good instrumentals
