TUNE Young Fathers - Get Up
The latest track to be unveiled from their debut album, DEAD, is GET UP. The song reveals an obsession with the surface texture of sound, the psychedelicist’s love of noise. Equally, the deep, warm, maternal reassurance of bass. But the band also craft hook after hook, instant kid-melodies, piling them up on great reefs of backing vocals. Above all,what they insist on is that their music has to mean something, emotionally.
GET UP is a beguiling, visceral masterpiece of slanted hip-hop pop, infectious both melodically and emotionally. You’ll find yourself singing it days after listening. And then you will notice the other lyrics, not just the 'get up's but the corpse at the lido,
the cowboys, the body in the basement... but by then it will be too late.
