Young Fathers Make Their U.S. Late Night TV Debut On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Young Fathers make their U.S. late night TV debut with a performance of 'Get Up' and 'Low' on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In addition to putting out one of our favorite releases so far in 2014, Young Fathers are sneakily becoming the year's most memorable live act. We saw their otherworldly presence firsthand back in March at Okayplayer's Official SXSW Showcase, where the Scottish/Liberian/Nigerian trio was backed by a full string section. Since then they've continued to rattle walls on their DEAD tour, including a stop at Electrowerkz in London (which you can watch here) and a roof-shaking studio session at KEXP. Most recently YF hit Jimmy Kimmel Live in L.A. to perform their haywire revolutionary anthem "Get Up" and their anti-ethereal hyper-ballad "Low." Watch Young Fathers claim the late night throne in the videos below.
