Young Fathers – La Belle Angele, Edinburgh – 10 Feb 2023

Young Fathers are a significant force in modern music and I’m really proud of the international impact of three guys from Edinburgh. But I have always manged to just miss going to see them, ’til now. And to be honest their music has never been quite my cup of tea though I had heard they were amazing live. I can confirm that’s absolutely correct!

This event was the album launch show for their new album ‘Heavy Heavy’ and though I enjoyed my sneak preview listens they didn’t major on those songs only and included plenty of past favourites. Much appreciated by me since I enjoyed hearing all their best songs.

Like the packed enthusiastic crowd I was well impressed by their performance. So intense and arresting, great singing and moving interplay between the three and supporting musician Callum Easter. They have serious messages and matching demeanours, no smiles were cracked, well only once! I smiled all the way through though. Superb, must catch them again soon.

Attended by George
