Young Fathers, the Edinburgh based trio, with a sound reminiscent of early Outkast, De La Soul and Spank Rock return with a brand new single.
Coming quick of the back of â€˜Automaticâ€™ â€“ released this summer on This Is Music (Little Boots, SMD) – Young Fathers have just released â€˜Fevers Worseâ€™ digitally, through Black Sugar.
Deviating slightly from their usual upbeat party tunes, â€˜Fevers Worseâ€™ introduces a darker and more intense side to their repertoire, with its rapidly pulsing, intoxicating electronic beat and looping vocals.
1066, the supreme producer behind Young Fathersâ€™ remixes of Phoenix, Golden Silvers, Shoes vs Primary 1, Dan Black and Esser – G from the band – has this time turned his hand to their own music.
Adding dubby beats and glitching samples to highlight their razor-sharp lyrics, 1066 brings â€˜Fevers Worseâ€™ straight onto the dance floor.
The Blessings – founding members of Lucky Me (the art collective set up in Scotland with Hudson Mohawke amongst others) â€“ also add their 90â€™s reworking of â€˜Fevers Worseâ€™ to the mix. An up and coming talent on the dance scene, they chop up the track with remarkable results â€“ twinkling percussion interspersed with a thumping drum machine.
Having shared the stage with Dizzee Rascal, Professor Green, Grandmaster Flash, La Roux and The Noisettes in the past; Young Fathers have also co-written tracks with Simian Mobile Disco and break-beat duo Stanton Warriors.
Constantly on the road, refining and developing their critically acclaimed and brilliantly choreographed live show, this year saw Young Fathers headline the BBC Introducing Stage at T In The Park, play Creamfields, Sonar and Glastonbury (with Stanton Warriors).
Their eagerly awaited debut album will be out Spring 2011.
To celebrate the release of their new single, â€˜Fevers Worseâ€™, The band have roped in fellow Glaswegians and Dazed favourites, LuckyMe, for a stylish remix and are giving it away for free.
