Artist – Young Fathers
Song – “Holy Ghost”
Per the official press release –
Today, Young Fathers released a video for “Holy Ghost” from their critically acclaimed third album Cocoa Sugar (Ninja Tune). Directed by Oscar Hudson-renowned for his videos for the likes of Radiohead (‘Lift’), Bonobo (‘No Reason’) and Young Thug & Carnage (‘Homie’) among others-the video uses a rare, high powered military thermal camera (or as Young Fathers’ Graham ‘G’ Hastingsdescribes it: “Shot in Infra-Dead™“). Filmed on location in Perthshire, Scotland, the “Holy Ghost” video combines cinematography, surveillance and choreography to unique effect.
“Holy Ghost” is taken from Young Fathers’ third full length album, Cocoa Sugar, which was released in March via Ninja Tune. The record – produced, written and recorded by the band throughout 2017 – is Young Fathers’ biggest commercial and critical success to date. Featuring the singles “Lord,” “In My View“ and “Toy”,Cocoa Sugar builds on the widespread acclaim of their two previous full length records; 2014’s Mercury Prize winning DEAD and 2015’s White Men Are Black Men Too.
