Young Fathers may have won the Mercury Prize but it seems there isn’t universal acclaim for their LP Dead - it’s been a noticeable absence from quite a few of the end of year lists that have been published so far, which we find rather surprising, being as inventive, raw and absorbing as it is.
Here at Breaking More Waves we’re very much in the thumbs up for Dead school, having first discovered the LP earlier this year when we asked our Twitter followers in Spring what albums they’d been enjoying so far in 2014 and one that got a number of shouts was Dead. It seems our Twitter followers have excellent taste. Young Fathers is also a fascinating live band; their show we saw this year at Glastonbury was one of the most intense performances we've seen for some time.
Now the Scottish three piece have released a new track to the world. According to the band’s label Some Come Soon was formed when they got together “for a wild night in a studio ran by a man called Daddy Kev. Under the influence of surf, skunk and earthquakes they got choral, and so the end of the world became a pop song.” It could quite easily fit on Dead, but is a stand-alone single on its own right due for release on the 1st December.
