young fathers share video for toy

Young Fathers have shared the video for ‘Toy’, the latest single from their critically-acclaimed third album Cocoa Sugar. Directed by Salomon Ligthelm, who they’ve collaborated with before, the vid reimagines world leaders as spoilt brats. As Salomon explains, “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.” If that floats your boat, catch Young Fathers live at All Points East at the end of the month.
