Young Fathers 'LOW'

Watch Young Fathers new music video for "LOW" and get the details on their upcoming album DEATH.

Young Fathers crashed onto our radar with two outstanding mixtapes — Tape One and Tape Two — that could've well been albums. The Edinburgh-based Scottish / Liberian / Nigeria trio recently announced Dead, their first proper LP, which is lead by this video single for "LOW."

For more from the band check out YF's Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape. Watch the video for "LOW" below and look for Dead out Feb 4 via Anticon/Big Dada.
