Cocoa Sugar sees Young Fathers – Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings and Kayus Bankole – operating with a newfound clarity and direction. Written and recorded throughout 2017 in the band’s basement studio and HQ, the album is, without doubt, their most confident and complete statement to date and is set to build on the success of the group’s previous albums: 2014’s Mercury Prize-winning “DEAD” and 2015’s “White Men Are Black Men Too.”
The record has already been met with widespread acclaim; described by Mojo as “an avant-pop masterclass” and Uncut as “a heady joy”. This album finds the band playfully molding disparate sonic motifs, before breathlessly colliding them in a disorientating and confrontational fashion. The group’s aim on this album is to explore the very essence of their own art.
This week’s download comes from the Scottish trio and Mercury Prize-winning, Young Fathers and their latest album, “Cocoa Sugar.” You have seven days to download their Afrofuturistic-pop song, “In My View.”
