Seigar Recommends: “In My View” by Young Fathers

Seigar, the photographer, is back.

Some years ago, I enjoyed a concert by Young Fathers at the FIB Festival, in Benicassim, Spain. They were great. It was on a Thursday, but probably today they would sing on a Saturday. They are getting bigger. Their tribal sounds are known now by a wider audience. “In My View” is an irresistible tune, both catchy and tense. The lyrics — half-sung and half-spoken — keep the same quirk touch as the percussion and electronic sounds behind.

This Mercury Prize winning rap trio from Edinburgh does not produce mainstream music, but this track I’m bringing you today is probably their catchiest track so far, even more than “Lord,” their first single. “In My View” holds their sharp essence, but adds some inspired dance hall beats. Anthony Fantano defined the track as “easily one of the most haunting ballads the group has ever drawn up, with some pretty intriguing lyrics about what feels like, I dunno, love, attraction, sex, money….”, words which only help my invitation for you to listen.

Enjoy one of the best songs of 2018 so far…
