The Scottish trio Young Fathers just put up an amazing video for their new single ‘Toy‘ off their third album ‘Cocoa Sugar‘ which was released earlier this year on Ninja Tune. The video sees the band reignite their creative relationship with renowned Stink Films Director Salomon Ligthelm, who approached the trio with the video concept after hearing the track. Ligthelm previously collaborated with Young Fathers on a video for their 2014’s single ‘Mr Martyr‘. Watch both below!
The tone of the track is so visceral and abrasive, which I think marries the political subject matter perfectly. I honestly just really like the idea of seeing dictators behaving like spoilt little children – pissed with the world, because things aren’t going their way. Looking at the political climate of our time, I’d say truth is certainly stranger than fiction. Salomon Ligthelm
