More about Young Fathers? Young Fathers are ‘G’ Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi and Kayus Bankole. The three men are each named after their fathers—a unifying bond for a band that pushes against the binds of definition. They are hiphop and punk, rock and pop, and anything else you want to label them as, but really, they are none and all of these. They released one of the most original albums of 2014 with ‘DEAD,’ which won them the 2014 Mercury Prize—the UK’’s highest honour for an album. ‘DEAD’ included single “GET UP,” performed by the group on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2014. The mesmerizing performance was their U.S. late night debut, bringing their lauded live show into U.S. homes for the first time.
