Young Fathers & Tim Brinkhurst

Man Up

About this artwork

Mercury Prize-winning band Young Fathers formed in Edinburgh in 2008. Friends and creative partners since their teens, Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings and Kayus Bankole produce music which draws from a myriad of genres. The music they make isn’t easily described and doesn’t fit under any specific genre. Their refusal to pander to tabloid expectations and their willingness to discuss ‘difficult’ topics has gained them a dedicated and loyal global fanbase. In this video, co-produced with their former creative director Tim Brinkhurst, they address the concept of masculinity and what it means to be a man today.
