Review: Young Fathers “Shame”

 

“Nothing but a bare faced lie
Is all you cu*ts can hold on to”

Early last month Young Fathers released their brilliant music video for “Shame”, a soulful track taken from their latest LP “White Men Are Black Men Too”. The premise of the video sees a young man (Joshua Hubbard),  storming intensely through an industrial estate before climatically breaking out into a manic dance routine that seems more necessary and cathartic rather than something cool to do. Directed by Jeremy Cole, with choreography by Holly Blakey, the clip certainly captures the dark undertones of the tracks lyrics in an intense yet danceable way.
