The Mercury Prize winning UK trio Young Fathers will be making a stop in San Francisco at The Independent on Saturday, April 25th. The group just released its newest album White Men Are Black Men Too on April 7th with the Big Dada label.
The newest single from the album, “Shame,” embodies their hard to define sound. The song has multiple rhythmic layers of instruments and vocals that clash and harmonize throughout demanding the body to bounce with the beat. It’s a bit of rock, a bit pop, some hip hop and pretty much everything in between. There is something great about a band that is named so literally (all three members are named after their fathers) playing music that is so abstract.
Check out the brand new video for Shame here:
Opening for Young Fathers is Mas Ysa, pronounced mass ee-sah.
The Canadian-born performer has a newly released track titled “Look Up” which relies heavily on quick, synthesized beats with choral accents. The song resonates with the sound of his debut EP, Worth, released last February with Downtown Records.

The show starts at 9:00 p.m. Tickets won’t break the bank at $15.
